Student Awards and Achievements

Island School’s Tenpin Bowling Team strikes like lightening at the HKSSF Bowling Cup on the 7 May 2019. This is the second year Island School has entered this competition in the Boys Open and the team have been practicing since August. In the individual competition Ajay Pursram 12F bowled a combined total of 475 points for his 3 games taking 26th place out of 123 competitors. His score of 180 in the second game was the highest of the day.

Sam Pijpers 12E scored 160, Tushar Bhavnani 12R scored 157 making them the next 2 highest Island School bowlers. Dhruv Jain 12R and Viren Prashard 12E also performed well.

Tushar Bhavnani 12R, Jesse Harrington 12D and Kabir Sakhrani 12N competed in the team competition. They bowled consistently, however they didn’t manage to place this time.

Next year, Island School hopes to enter a girls team. If anyone in Year 9 or above is interested in playing, please look out for notices on the Bulletin.

Boys and Girls Tennis Team

It has been a fantastic season for both the Boys and Girls Tennis Teams this year.

The boys secured promotion by finishing 2nd in their league having been undefeated all season in the HKSSF Div 2 League of 22 teams. They played teams from all over Hong Kong throughout the year with a tremendous spirit and great sportsmanship. There were some very exciting and tight matches along the way but the boys came through under the guidance of coaches Magus and TC, who I would like to thank for their continued support and enthusiasm. We are all looking forward to playing in Div 1 next year.
