It was another sporty week for our students last week. On Sunday, our U12 basketball team travelled to Doha to play Doha College A and B teams in the QUESS Basketball League. After a tough first match against their A team, which ended 31-10 to Doha College, we played their B team, which was a much closer game. The final score ended 10-16 to NAISAK, which meant we finished in second place in the QUESS U12 Basketball League. Huge congratulations to the girls after such a physically demanding afternoon!
Our Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 students took to the pool to compete in the annual QPPSSA Swimming Competitions at AKIS. There were some very impressive swims from the students who put their skills to the test against students from schools who are able to swim regularly. It was also the first taste of competitive swimming for the majority of our students and they got to learn a lot about the sport. All students swam fantastically and really enjoyed the experience. We are very proud of all who took part and would like to congratulate the following students who placed in their event, well done!
