Sports Bulletin – 21 June 2019

Last Friday 14 June, we completed another successful Inter-House Swim Gala.  As always, our students were fantastic; they swam, they cheered and most importantly they had a great time! When students were not in the pool swimming, they were taking full advantage of the Swim Gala Photobooth. I hope they went home with lots of fun memories. This event was one of the most important events in the Inter-House calendar as it was an opportunity to win many House points! A special shout out to the following students who have broken swimming records this year:

  • Henry Chy who broke the Year 7 Boys 50m Freestyle record. He successfully swam in 30.43s, beating the old record by one second! Well done Henry – fantastic job!
  • Taka Leong broke the 50m breaststroke record by half a second creating a new record time of 35.08s. Well done Taka – awesome effort.
  • Emma Standing broke two records this year: firstly the Year 9 Butterfly record by over a second. She secured a new record with a time of 30.28s. She also beat the Freestyle record with a new time of 27.85seconds. Absolutely amazing job Emma – well done.
  • The Year 7 Bahay Boys also broke the Boys Freestyle Relay record with a time of 2.31.32s. The swimmers were: Admes Hung, Adam Au, Enzo Wong and Raphael Leung.

The races were close and all the swimmers gave their best. The results of the day were as follows:

  1. Namas
  2. Bahay
  3. Casa
  4. Kuca
  5. Shtepi
  6. Maison

Well done to everyone who took part in what was a truly fantastic day! We look forward to seeing what you can achieve in next year’s gala already!


On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to have Dream Sports Academy come and hold a basketball training for our students after school. We invited all Years 7-9 boys and girls and we had about 26 students participating, which was a great turnout! They did several drills and they all had a lovely time and learnt a lot during the hour session they had.

Congratulations to our IB Graduates! South Island School 2024 IB Results are now available! Please find themHERE
