Special Shout out:
The PE department would like to acknowledge one of our greatest supporters and her very supportive family. Mrs. Norma Mota and her family (Jose, Natalia & Sebastian) will be leaving the school at the end of the month. Norma has always been a very prominent member of the LFA and the sporting community. We are very sorry to see the family leave LIS as they have all brought a great deal to the school community. Good luck to all in their next adventure!
New house shirts:
After a long stretch the old house shirts have finally been retired. We now have brand new house shirts with new logos, new quick dry sports material and a whole new design.
We researched the house characters and their amazing history and discovered that they are the Four Guardians of the Four Compass Directions & Celestial Emblems of the Chinese Emperor. They represent:
Black Tortoise (Black Warrior) = North, Winter, Black, Water
White Tiger (Kirin) = West, Fall, White, Metal
Red Bird (Phoenix) = South, Summer, Red, Fire
Blue Dragon = East, Spring, Blue/Green, Wood
The shirts are for sale in the clothing store now.
The old house shirts may still be worn for PE and house activities.
Mr. Ben and Ms. Allerie will be coaching the team and will chaperone the trip to Suzhou from the 23rd – 25th of March.
CISA swimmers will be able to sign up after season two of CISA finishes. Stay tuned.
ACAMIS & CISA Season 2/ U19 Basketball & U15 Volleyball:
