Primary End of Seasons Sports Awards + BBQ

This past Wednesday, the Primary School hosted its annual End of Season Sports Awards and BBQ. With all the pupils who have represented the school in rugby, netball, football, swimming and basketball invited to attend, along with parents, this was an opportunity to celebrate all the great achievements of our sporting teams in Primary this year, the highlight of which being the U11 Netball team, who won the Shanghai Championship back in March, the first ever team from all of WAIS (Primary and Secondary) to win a regional championship!

After the awards were made by the coaches involved this season, pupils and parents alike were able to tuck into a delicious BBQ on the athletics track, before a huge parent / teacher vs pupil football match took place on the field. All in the spirit of good fun, the eight parents and teachers took on the forty plus pupils admirably, and despite the numerical disadvantage, were able to score two long range goals from Mr. Gray and Mr. Wood, before J. Cao pulled one back for the pupil team. Final Score: Parents / Teachers 2-1 Pupils.

Ultimately, all the children involved in sport in the school this year have really done themselves proud, and with each passing year, the standard of sport at the school really is improving. With upcoming rugby and netball tours to Beijing for our U11s next week, as well as the Summer Term House Sports and some multi-sports fixtures versus other schools still to come this term, there will be even more opportunity for our pupils to take part in competitive sport, which makes such a fantastic addition to their lives at school.
