Sports Bulletin – 30 August 2019

Our activities programme gets underway next week which we are all looking forward to. The number of students signing up for activities is incredible although this has brought its own dilemma in trying to give everyone at least one of their choices. This is not easy when some activities have a limit on numbers due to facilities and staffing but we have done our best to try and accommodate everyone. Unfortunately, some students may not have received a top activity choice yet but we are working on a solution to give them priority in their preferred activity in Term 2. It is also clear that some activities are more popular than others. Some activities have a waiting list of 50 students, so we are also working on a way to offer these clubs more often throughout the week, again taking into account facilities and staffing.

We thank you all for your patience and understanding as we continually work to improve the ECA offering to our students.

As the activities get underway we will have some of our school teams representing SIS in competitions and the first competition of the year saw the A Grade Boys Rugby team participate in a 10-a-side Tournament at HKIS on Tuesday. It was very hot in the afternoon and after losing to HKIS 10-7, they were able to put in an impressive performance against Sha Tin College, winning 31-5. Well done to all the boys who played in the season-opener and we look forward to our Rugby teams achieving even more success this year after a very good season last year.

Have a good weekend.
