Our CIS Badminton Grizzlies are a powerful team because we laugh and have fun whether we win or lose. Clifford International School won more games when we went to play them at their school this week, but they didn’t even come close to defeating our SPIRIT. Our spirit is so strong because we simply love playing. We walked away from Clifford with an even bigger smile than we came with, grateful for the learning experience, and happy to play with our friends on the team!
Inter-School Track Meets
It was a fabulous afternoon for all involved. It was a fantastic day for the Grades 2-5 Inter-School Track Meet here at CIS. This was the first Intern-School Track meet that CIS has hosted and by the looks of the students faces, they had a ton of fun. A big thank you goes out to the PE Staff for putting together a great and fun afternoon for the students. Also, thank you to the Grade 11/12 PE Class for organizing and help run the events this afternoon. This will be used to establish a portion of their class leadership mark. It was great to see both young and old CIS students out on the Track today working together.
The students have been practicing the events for the lead-up of today. All grades participated in Sprints/Hurdles/Javelin/Standing Long Jump and Relays. This also leads us to CIS hosting the GISES League Track & Field on Saturday, November 3rd. All students who participated today will get a special invitation to bring home to show their parents. The PE staff hope that we are well represented and that those families will make an effort to come and support the Grizzlies.
