Weekly email from EIS to Parents - 07th November 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Meet the SLT

We are firmly in the middle of our Saigon International School Athletic Conference (SISAC), City Championships for Season 1. Our Orcas are competing in Cross Country, Volleyball, Basketball, Table Tennis and Football Championships. Last week, we had great performances in the Cross Country Championships with the U9 Boys Team finishing 3rd out of 14 schools.
Our U14 Girls Basketball 'A' team finished with a strong 3rd place performance, beating out ISHCMC in the last game. The U14 Girls Basketball 'B' team were the SISAC tournament champions.
The U19 Boys Volleyball teams had very strong finishes to their season as well, with the 'B' team finishing in 6th place, and the 'A' team overcoming adversity and some very difficult opponents to defeat BIS in the final and finish in 1st place as SISAC Champions.
