It was a privilege and a pleasure on Thursday morning to wish our Under 13 FOBISIA Sports Team the best of luck and wave them goodbye as they headed off to Phuket for the annual games. We are taking our largest ever team to an Under 13 Games, where they will be competing against seven other schools, from across Asia, in athletics, swimming, basketball and football. They have spent a long time training and preparing for this event, including several weekends at the athletics track, to ensure that they are as confident and as prepared as possible for the event. My thanks to Ms Smith, Mr Walsh, Mr Lincoln and Mr Widemann for the many hours they have given up to help the students ahead of travelling to Thailand.
We have also had a lovely week welcoming Primary students to use our Science labs as part of their STEAM Week. Amongst the many activities they have been doing, they saw in action a Ruben’s Tube which shows wave action through controlled flames. They also, through a music and science collaboration, looked at the effect of sound waves through water. It was lovely to welcome them, and I know that they got a lot from this experience.
