We have had some outstanding achievements this term within our teams in the ADISSA league and tournament competitions during term one.
Some of this term's highlights include:
• Highest finish in BSME U15 large school games, including ten medal finishes in athletics and runners-up in boy’s football.
• ADISSA League winners and tournament winners in football and rugby.
• ADISSA swim gala runners up and winners of Junior B league.
• Increased participation in Team Falcon Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) program. Over 650 students participated in over twenty Team Falcon CCA’s.
• BIS Abu Dhabi Team Falcon participated in every league and competition that ADISSA offered in primary and secondary age groups.
It was great to see students’ engagement within the Team Falcon CCA program. The department are trying to accommodate the majority of sports for all students in year three and upwards throughout the year. Unfortunately, we can’t continue these throughout the whole year. ADISSA leagues change to accommodate the different age groups and genders every term and as a department it is only fair to give each age group the same allocation of training time.
The department is committed to allowing the students opportunity to progress, but teams will still be selected based on ability, attitude towards training and demonstration of being a good ambassador of the school’s values.

This table shows the teams that BIS Abu Dhabi Team Falcon will be entering during term two and the CCA’s program support this through the training. If you missed the sign-up window for the Team Falcon CCA’s please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
It’s been really good to see some parents come to support their children during fixtures and we will still encourage their participation next term.
Irrespective of the result, the student’s progression and enjoyment at the core of school sport with trophies and medals being a very good bonus!
I would you to thank the contribution of the PE and BIS Abu Dhabi staff who put a huge amount of time and effort into making sure these opportunities happen.
Hope you have a fantastic winter break,
