On November 12th, 41 grade 4 and 5 students participated in the first ever Primary School ISL football tournament, hosted at BISI. It was a great day, filled with fun, sportsmanship and friendship. Despite many children who had hardly played soccer before, we managed to win a 2nd place trophy for the IICS Blue boys’ team and 3rd place for the IICS girls’ team.
There was wonderful support from a large parent contingent cheering on the teams, with the loudest cheer reserved for a late winning goal for the girls’ team.
Primary soccer gained many more devotees after this experience and we look forward to more events of this kind. A big thank you to Mr. Dean for organizing the IICS participation in this event and to Ms. Dabinett, Ms. Wachiowak and Atilla Bey for their help with teams on the day. Congratulations to all teams for their efforts and the the way they represented our school and themselves.
