Terry Fox Run

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Terry Fox Run over the weekend. Close to 100 CDNIS students/staff/families took part in the fun run at RCHK to celebrate a Canadian legend and to raise funds for Cancer research, while earlier in the week, our Reception students (check out their video here) held their own run on the 6/F pitch and raised $2740! Way to go! The Terry Fox Run is held in many different countries around the world, it’s great to be a part of this international and truly Canadian event.  Several of our senior CDNIS students were also involved in the organisation and fundraising for this event.  #proudofcdnis

Amazing Results from our SEASAC Weekend!

Day 1

A really great first day of SEASAC Football and Volleyball.

Our Girls Volleyball are 2 from 3 with strong wins over UWC (who we lost to in Japan last week) and then beating the traditionally strong RIS 3-0, the final game of the day was a reply of last years final v NIST and after a fierce battle we went down 1-3.
Our Boys Volleyball had three tough games on Day 1. We won the first and then fought back from 2 sets down in their last game 3-2, we ended the day 2/3 which puts us in a good position to qualify for the Semis tomorrow afternoon.
An amazing first day in Division 1 for our Football girls. After winning Div 2 last year the same players (and coaches) started in Div 1 with a dream 5-0 result.  They then fought back from a 0-4 half time deficit to just lose 3-4 to BPS before finishing strong with a 6-2 win over UWCSEA!  I am so stoked for this hard working team as they are now dominating in Div 1 SEASAC, they have come so far in 2 years.
The Boys Football are in Singapore and are looking good for a Semi Final finish with 2 wins from 3. After preparing the last 4 weeks for an indoor tournament because of the Singapore pollution from the smoke and haze, they arrived to clear blue skies and suddenly the decision was made to go ahead outside.  Some quick tactical changes by the master coaches and we are on track for a good performance.
Well done to all 48 players and our team of 9 staff down in BK and Singapore.  I’m lucky to work at such an awesome school that really does support our teams and athletes well. We arrived early, prepared well, looked good in new playing kit and we are playing so well.  #proudofcdnisseasacday1
A special thanks to everyone who contributed to the Annual Fund, every single family can share in the above results as all 48 of our athletes travelled to SEASAC with the support of our Annual Fund.


Day 2

This is an very short update with very good news.

For the first time that I can remember all 4 of our SEASAC Teams made it through pool play and into their respective SEASAC Semi Finals! This is an amazing achievement. Something to be proud of and to celebrate.
Semi finals have been played tonight and tomorrow our;
Girls Volleyball Team will be playing for Gold!
Boys Football Team will be playing for Gold!
Girls Football Team will be playing for Bronze.
Boys Volleyball Team will be playing for Bronze.
In every case they have exceeded all our – but possibly not their – expectations.
Each and every team has a story to tell today of how they made it out of pool play and gave everything they had in the semi final. I’ll wait to I hear these stories first hand from the teams and coaches as I can not do their journey justice retelling it third hand. I look forward to reporting good news this time tomorrow, till then can I encourage the entire CDNIS community to join with me in telling our athletes and coaches that we are proud of them and that we wish them the best of luck Sunday morning as they face their final challenge.
