News from the PE and Athletics Desk


Two weeks ago saw the culmination of this year’s ISACI competitions with our combined age swim team heading to Stonehill International School in Bangalore. In swimming schools are able to enter 6 teams: 3 boys and 3 girls teams with ages ranging from PYP 5 to DP 2. MBIS entered 5 of the 6 teams with our teams primarily made up of MYP 1,2 and 3 students. Thank you to those MYP 4 and 5 students who did participate as your leadership and expertise around the pool encouraged our younger swimmers. The average age of the MBIS team  was about 13 years old, with all other schools averaging nearly 15 years old.

MBIS came home Champions in the Under 12 Boys and the 13/14 years Boys age groups. Both teams nearly doubled the points of the second placed team and showed that we have depth in our program. Despite finishing 4th in the 15 years plus Girls and Boys divisions we were extremely competitive with our young athletes. Our Under 12 Girls team came away with many medals and finished in 3rd place overall. Congratulations to our ISACI swimmers.


Thank you for your continued support,
