Primary FOBISIA 2017

The Primary Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) Games last weekend were hosted by Jerudong International School (JIS) in Brunei Darussalam. Around 200 student athletes from six schools were taking part in the Games – JIS; British School Manila; Dulwich College, Shanghai; Garden International School, Kuala Lumpur; Harrow International School, Bangkok; and Kellett School, Hong Kong. My better half and I went to Brunei to cheer on our daughter.

On first day in Athletic, Ariel did 800m sprint (PB at 5th place), 4×100 relay (Silver), Discus Throw (Gold) and Shuttle Relay (Silver).

2nd Day is Swimming in the morning, Ariel won Bronze in 200m IM, Silver in 50m Butterfly, Gold in 100m Medley Relay, Gold in 200m Free Relay and Gold in Tyre Relay. After lunch break they played T-Ball, Ariel’s Team won 5 straight matches (Gold), Miguel and I were in awe with their efforts and brilliant team spirits, super proud parents.

3rd Day was Football, Ariel’s Team won 2 games, 2 draw and 1 lost resulting in Bronze medal, absolutely fantastic!

Last but not least, British School Manila won Silver in the overall athletics and swimming, truly amazing achievement since they had a change in opposition and what was a significantly stronger group (compared to last year).

Thank you to all amazing Coaches, wonderful BSM Teachers & splendid Supporters, congratulations Ariel and Team, we are very, very proud of you all.
