AISB Athletics Day
Written by Mr Andre, Head of Sport, PE & Aquatics
AISB recently made history with its first-ever Athletics Day held at the Thai-Japan Youth Centre on November 10, 2023. This momentous event was a celebration of athleticism, camaraderie, and the vibrant spirit of our diverse student body.
Under the bright sun and against the scenic backdrop of the Tahi-Japan Youth Centre, students from various year levels came together to participate in a thrilling array of track and field events.
From sprints to long jumps to shot puts, and obstacle courses the athletic prowess displayed by our students was truly awe-inspiring. Each participant, whether our smallest of Year 1's to our biggest of Year 12's showcased determination, perseverance, and an unwavering commitment to give their best.
The vibrant energy was not limited to the track and field; supporters and parents cheered passionately from the sidelines, representing our houses, and fostering an atmosphere of unity and school pride.
What made this Athletics Day truly exceptional was the unison of cultures and nationalities. AISB's diverse community was on full display, with students of different backgrounds coming together, competing, and supporting one another with enthusiasm and respect.
AISB's inaugural Athletics Day at the Tahi-Japan Youth Centre was more than a sporting event; it was a testament to the school's commitment to holistic education, fostering not just academic excellence but also physical fitness, teamwork, and a spirit of inclusivity.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants, teachers, staff, and parents for their unwavering support, making this event a resounding success.
Here's to many more memorable Athletics Days filled with sportsmanship, unity, and the thrill of competition at AISB!
