Dear parents and caregivers
Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Island School sports awards and like many in the audience, I was thrilled by the excellent achievements of our athletes this year.
Our sports programmes play a key role in Island School life and we have a proud tradition of nurturing the talents of some of Hong Kong’s premier athletes.
Our success in sport is driven by the large contingent of students participating in a comprehensive range of competitive interschool sports and non-competitive, school based sports conducted on a weekly basis.
Representing the Typhoons’ is seen as an honour at Island School and our athletes become part of a tradition which imposes a high expectation of personal conduct where fair play and good sportsmanship are valued above all else.
Our coaches’ focus on building a culture that revolves around how we play rather than the result, and the students themselves hold team mates to account in committing to this ethos.
I have been thrilled by our students’ commitment to training and competition which endures even when the weather is not conducive.
At the sports awards the prestigious A grade sportswoman award went to Kiara Jim and Mathew Wright was named A grade sportsman of the year. Both are very worthy recipients indeed.
Congratulations to Mr David Martin, Sports Director and all of the staff for a very successful event and another excellent year of sports.
