It has been a very busy week full of matches this week, starting with A Grade Boys and Girls Rugby. The A Grade Boys Rugby played against combined team, Kellet and Sha Tin down at Happy Valley and won 65-7. Congratulations on the big win! Player of the day goes to Simon Morris. The A Grade girls played two 7’s games combining with WIS. The first game was against HKIS and won 15-5, with the second game against KGV lost 5-15. Great work from our A Grade girls as it was their first game playing together and without training together with WIS. Player of the day goes to Nathalie D’Haene. Back at school, we had the A and B Grade girls’ first ESF games for the school year. A Grade girls won 47-13 against WIS and B Grade girls won 21-13. Great wins from both A and B Grade girls!

On Wednesday over at Australian International School, our Junior Girls Football team and C Grade Boys Football team played against AIS. The Junior Girls won 2-0. Players of the match go to Kara Poulton and Maya Meekcoms, both of whom were solid in defence. The C Grade boys won 7-1 against AIS. A big win from them and great team performance especially for their first game. Well Done!

On Thursday afternoon, our A and B Grade Basketball Boys played against Island School. A Grade boys won 45-24. Man of the match goes jointly to Justin Yung and Lucas Yung. Great teamwork and a great start to their season! Unfortunately our B Grade boys lost 18-40 against Island School. Man of the match goes to the whole team.
