Jonathan O’Sullivan –  Athletics and Activities Coordinator

Dear Chinthes,

It has been a very quiet athletic week around ISY. There were no formal athletics over the weekend that ISY teams were entered into. However, there was a golf get together of some of our young golfers, their parents and some of the staff. This was enjoyed by all that participated.
The facilities schedules will remain the same for next week. Please check below for specific times and the booking form. Remember, to use the ISY facilities you must make a booking.

Upcoming Athletics 

    MS Badminton Saturday May 6th @ International School Myanmar

    Elementary School Athletics

    A group of high school students are organizing a 4 square tournament for the elementary school students. This will be in the next couple of weeks so please look out for how to sign up!

    Middle School Athletics

    ISY will be represented by a girls and boys middle school badminton team on Saturday, May 6. There is a lot of excitement in this team, especially with the success of the SEASAC badminton teams in March. The tournament will be held at International School Myanmar high school gym. Parents and supporters are encouraged to go along and support the team. The tournament starts at 7am and has an estimated finish of 1:30pm.
    We wish our young athletes all the very best of luck and skill for tomorrow.

    Golf at ISY

    Unfortunately a SEASAC golf tournament was not held this year. However, that has not dampened the spirits of our ISY golfers who had a get together over the weekend. From our youngest to our most experienced golfers played a round of golf on Sunday.
    This was the perfect opportunity to share experience and have a good time doing it with some of our older ISY students sharing their knowledge with the younger players, and teachers. Everyone had a great time and golf is well and truly alive and well at ISY.
