ESLRs on the Playing Field and Court

ESLRs on the Playing Field and CourtLast week, many elementary students started the second trimester of After School Activities (ASAs) while MS teams practiced touch rugby and high school teams practiced basketball.  This week, SIS hosts a golf tournament for ACAMIS, the Association of Chinese and Mongolian International Schools and our MS touch rugby students compete in Guangzhou.

The majority of SIS students are involved in after school sports activities through ASAs or SIS sponsored basketball, volleyball, golf, swimming, touch rugby, soccer, cross country, track, or badminton, at least one of which is going on practically every week of the school year.

These programs fill a key role in the life of the school and in the growth and development of those who participate, providing unique opportunities to engage in each the Expected Student Learning Results (ESLRs).  For example, collaboration and communication are at the heart of team sport participation.  Managing time to juggle studies and sports practice requires personal management.  High school student athletes demonstrate citizenship as they volunteer to help coach younger players.

The after-school sports is also an important part of the IB diploma program which requires students to engage in Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) outside the academic program.  Like SIS, the IB recognizes the physical, emotional, and social benefits of participating in action, often in the context of school organized team and individual sports.  Come on out and see our students in action if you get a chance.
