Football: It was a tough match-up for our 12U football boys last Tuesday. They faced Canadian International School in what was arguably one of the highlight games of this season. CIS is the reigning Volkswagen Cup champ of this age group but this time our boys obtained the upper hand and celebrated a well-deserved 4:2 away win. Great job, boys!
Table Tennis: Our table tennis CCA team received a hearty welcome when they visited Shuqun Secondary School for a friendly match last week. The GESS boys competed well and a close-fought match over three rounds gained momentum quickly. The score was even at 2:2 after the first two rounds, and the final double game went to a nail-biting decider set that eventually ended 16:14 for Shuqun. A big “Thank You!” goes out to Shuqun School for inviting us to this wonderful, exceptionally well-organised event.
Taekwondo: On Tuesday, five GESS students competed at the 2018 National School Games Taekwondo Championships. Kristina Terekhova, Maxim Terekhov, Maximilian Beinert, Sophie Gams and Enfei Zhang represented our school in exemplary fashion, with Max and Enfei even winning gold medals in their competitions. Master Kim was tremendously proud of all his taekwondo students and their outstanding achievements.
