On behalf of the staff, students and parents of the British International School, Shanghai Puxi Campus, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to the 2016 U15 FOBISIA Games. We are all looking forward to some spirited competition in the sports arenas as well as the chance to renew acquaintances and make new ones.
This is the second FOBISIA Games our school has had the privilege of hosting. We fully appreciate how much time and dedication it takes from the competing schools to prepare and get organised for these events. So many thanks to all of the staff from the visiting schools for your efforts in preparing your teams for this event.
We now also fully understand just how much is involved in hosting such a large event. This has only been possible with the generous support of school staff, maintenance and administration teams, parents and our sponsors.
We are delighted to welcome you to Shanghai and to our school. I very much hope you enjoy the next few days and I look forward to meeting many of you on the touchline.
