Football: Our 14U girls, team B has consistently displayed a great attitude. In spite of being outnumbered due to a number of team members suffering from injuries, they played against Chatsworth and fought hard but eventually lost with a score of 0:2. For the subsequent game against ‘Tanglin Trust School’ player Kim Schakowski returned to the squad and, with exactly nine players, the girls earned a much-deserved 2:0 victory. Meanwhile, our boys’ team B had a tough match against the strong Stamford American International School and lost 1:6.
Basketball: Our 12U boys could not have started their journey in the ACSIS competition any stronger. They played their first three games last week and won them all in an absolutely impressive fashion. Great job, boys! Meanwhile, the 19U team suffered their first defeat, with a score of 36:53 against St. Joseph’s, after two wins in a row.
Volleyball: This year’s ‘Staff vs. Students’ volleyball tournament was a great success. Two staff and four student teams faced off in an epic battle for the crown and spent a competitive but enjoyable Tuesday afternoon in the sports hall. In a surprising turn of events, Coach Heidi’s staff team, which had previously struggled in the first couple of games, came through victoriously. Kudos to her team as well as all GESS staff and students involved in this event! In other news, our 14U girls and Coach Stefan Hessler have made their debut in ACSIS Division 1. The team fought well but eventually lost in 1:2 sets against Singapore American School.
Badminton: The 11U boys kicked off the new season with a 5:0 win over UWC East. A truly triumphant performance without dropping a single set! On top of the win, Mr. Pocks was most impressed by the boys’ attitude and sportsmanship. Well done boys!
