Last weekend the Year 10 International Award group successfully completed their Qualifying Expedition by trekking for two days in Dalat, and camping out in the forest. They planned all of their own equipment and food for the expedition, navigated the route and showed great determination and teamwork to reach the top of Langbian mountain on the second day. The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is an internationally recognised award which pushes students to their limits. Mr Alex Essery, our International Award Co-Ordinator, reflects on the role the award plays in our extra curricular programme. Well done to all students on a really tough weekend adventure.

Under 19 Girls Football
Despite a 3 -0 win against RISS this was a frustrating game, in which the Under 19 girls dominated their opponents but struggled to punish them. Aina Solis, Year 10, gives a view of the match from the player’s perspective.
Under 19 Boys Football
Two matches this week, one against ABC and the second against RISS, and wins for the Under 19 BIS boys in both games. Team Captain, Alex Lee from Year 13 describes the victories. Well played boys!
