Message from Mr. Jon Redding, Director of Sports and Extra-Curricular
It has been a very long time since we have been able to publish a sports bulletin with sports news in it! After what seems like an eternity we have been able to celebrate having some of our students participating in some externally organised competitions.
Our tennis, badminton, and rowing teams have been in action over the last week or so, taking part in HKSSF competitions with success. We are hopeful that more of our school sports teams will be able to start resuming competitive matches soon so please keep your eye on the sports noticeboard and social media pages for more information.
The Senior boys won a very close match over GSIS 4.5 to 3.5 – a great debut for Luca, Jonathan, and Ashton. The Player of the match was Jonathan with excellent captaincy from Adam Chan.
The senior girls tennis team took on Good Hope School, which is always a tough opponent. It was a good battle in very hot conditions and despite their best efforts, the team was defeated 1-7. Great debuts however from Kathy, Selena, and Mila. Mila got the set for us, while Kathy was player of the match for her hard-fought sets
The results for badminton are as follows:
Boys Division 1 Group 2
12-Nov-21 TSIS vs WYHK Lost 0-3
16-Nov-21 SPCC vs TSIS Lost 3-0
Girls Division 2 Group 2
03-Nov-21 IKTMC vs TSIS Won 0-3
We took 6 students to the Hong Kong Rowing Championships on Sunday with Jerome Tan and Adrian Lee taking the plunge for their first ever competitive race. They have only recently started rowing through the after-school activity programme so it is great to see them progressing to representing the school in a formal competition.
Hailey Tang was very impressive in her U14 heat where she came in 2nd place. In the final race, she, unfortunately, missed out on a bronze medal by 10 seconds. We also had a team competing in the mixed quad race with Hedia Wan, Aaron Ho, and Arnav Bopche making their debuts and Hailey Tang leading the team.
Hailey was the team MVP this weekend with her support and coaching of the newer members of the rowing team as well as her own race success. There will be more races scheduled for early next year.
Kirsty Donovan from 10K2 competed in the Spartan Race in Kam Tin on Saturday 20th November. Kirsty entered the 14-17 age group race which was a very challenging 5km race that included over 20 obstacles to get past. Kirsty did extremely well and managed to finish 1st in her race. Well done Kirsty!
