In amongst all of our fixtures, practices and regular P.E lessons, students here at TES have also been busy participating in their annual sports days. The events so far have been hugely successful and enjoyed across the board by staff, parents and pupils. A big thank you needs to be given to the staff here at TES for their efforts in assisting the P.E department. Without their diligence and efforts, the events would not have been as successful, so thank you! We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank parents for your continued support as well as our final thanks going to our wonderful students who exceeded expectations and helped make the events as enjoyable as they were. Huge congratulations also to all of our medal and trophy winners as well as our Year 6-8 record breakers; Owain, Benjamin, Riri, Jack, Christian, Woojin and Eunice. This week, on Wednesday we have our final sports day for Foundation Phase, which we have no doubt, will be as enjoyable as ever.
ISACK U13 Girls Football Tournament
Saturday saw our U13 girls football squad back in action in the final part of their football season. They started off superbly, winning very comfortably against TEA. 3-0 was the final score, however, there was plenty of opportunity for more. The girls were feisty and had an extremely high work rate from start to finish. The ball did not enter our half once during the game thanks to awesome defense from all 6 girls. Brimming with confidence, they went into their second match against KES. This game was much tougher and the girls were forced to work harder than before. They started off well once again, however they struggled to find the back of the net. A dubious penalty decision meant that with only 4 minutes left, we went 1-0 down, before a superb run from a KES midfielder sealed the deal with a superb finish. 2-0 to KES in the end, but the girls were unlucky not to score in this game. We moved onto BSK next who, last time, were able to squeeze a goal past us in the dying minutes. Unfortunately, the same result unfolded today. The girls played extremely well and never stopped chasing the ball from start to finish but yet again, could not score the goal they so rightfully deserved. With 2 minutes left, BSK managed to squeeze the ball through the middle of the pitch and score off one of the very few shots they’d had during the match. 1-0 to BSK- not the result the girls deserved at all. A draw was the very least they should have walked away with after having ran their socks off!
Finally, our achilles heal this year - NES. The girls really did throw everything into this game and were truly unlucky this time. Numerous chances and shots on goal, but not one found the back of the net. A 0-0 draw was what we had to settle for in the end.
A huge well done must be said to these girls though who, since September, have shown a great deal of determination and enthusiasm. They have made vast progress, and despite finishing 4th in the ISACK league, were able to come away 6th at the prestigious BSME tournament out of 16 schools. Well done to all of the girls who contributed to the football team this year.
KFSAC 5/ 6 Girls Unihoc Tournament
The Yr 5-6 Girls Unihoc team took 2nd place in the KFSAC tournament on Tuesday, losing out on the first place title to NES. The girls played fabulously in their qualifying round winning all of their games. Leila Aziz scored several of the team's goals, each set up beautifully by some powerful passes from Melanie, Yara and Zoha. Riri was a credit to her team as captain and goalkeeper blocking several goals from hitting the bench. During the final the girls played their hearts out but did loose eventually to the better team. Well done girls, 2nd place is still a fantastic achievement.
KFSAC 5 /6 Boys Unihoc Tournament
Unfortunately due to bad weather, the tournament had to be postponed to a later date which will be confirmed soon.
