FOBISIA Squad Training Begins

09 September 2015

Our U15 FOBISIA squads are leaving nothing to chance and have started training in earnest for the FOBISIA tour to Beijing in November. That means early mornings and lots of variety as the students prepare for tough competition in Basketball, Football, Athletics and Swimming.


The challenging training schedule includes three early morning, two lunchtime and two afterschool sessions each week. Wednesday morning saw the students hard at work honing their basketball skills under the guiding eye of coaches, Mrs Joanne Parrish and Mr Noel Wallace. The girls had B Block rocking with some inspirational music turned up loud to give them that added boost, while over in the S Block gym, the boys focused on key positions to lift their game.

It has been a very positive start to training. Mrs Parrish says, “We’ve had 100 percent commitment, great collaboration and dedication from the start. The students have really been showing great team spirit.”

This year’s U15 FOBISIA squads are:

Girls – Guila Teobaldi, Chiara Lamieri, Sarah Thornton, Isabelle Burlamacchi, Lovisa Lindquist, Jordan Schneider, Javeira Rojas, Annefloor Gabrielse, Vanessa Oyuchi, Clarisa La Scola, Kristi Li and Victoria Deschamps.

Boys – Gerald Gan, Joseph Chong, Nasser Keenan, Alex Steele, Luca Ruisi, Martin Barral, Simon Jenson, Ticiano Gao, Thomas Wallace, Laurenz Weiner, Till Scholten, Riccardo Perrone and Niccolo Goretti.

Mr Wallace and Mrs Parrish are joined by Mr Craig Northedge and Mrs Denica Howell to form the coaching team.
