BSME U15

Between the 15-17th November, the BSME U15 squad headed to New York University, Abu Dhabi to partake in the British Schools of the Middle East (BSME) Under 15 Games. Our students have worked tirelessly in the build-up to the games and were looking forward to displaying their sporting abilities at the region's highest level of school sport. Our squad were led by Team captains Bas and Charline, who are ‘seasoned’ athletes, having represented the school at BSME a number of times. They utilised their leadership skills and guidance to support their teammates throughout the whole competition.

The Day One programme consisted of Boys' Volleyball and Girls' Football, finishing 6th and 8th respectively in the tournament, signaling a strong start for our school.
