Resilience (resilencia) is the ability which people have to recover from adversity and be able to meet future goals; the capacity to overcome difficult circumstances; to be able to resist and start again...At the School we fully understand how important resilience is. And, in fact, it is one of the School´s most important values, one which we also try to instill in all our students.
This month we hosted the Schools´ International Rugby Clinic. Our Year 7 students won the competition beating Hastings, Holy Mary, and Saint George´s amongst others.
There was also a lot effort on show at the Schools´ International Basketball Tournament for girls. Our players fought until the end, never giving up, but it wasn´t to be. And we could only manage fourth place, despite our best efforts.
The competition was between 8 teams, 3 games per group, where we won against Montessori and St. Anne´s and then lost against Kensington who went on to win the tournament as a whole. We came second in our group, but lost against Hastings in the semi-finals, who came second in the tournament. In the 3rd and 4th position play-off game, we lost by only 3 points against King´s College, in a really hard fought game which could have gone either way.
We would like to offer our most sincere congratulations to everybody in the British Council School Team, all the players, and all the coaches for their sporting prowess, their fighting spirit and their fairplay. And also for knowing how to celebrate a Basketball 4th place, knowing that they have the ability to continue learning and improving, in a sport which they have just started off in.
Come on Champions, we are with you!!!!
