Thank you to the many parents who supported the students in their preparation for the Spelling Bee Competition.
It certainly paid off.
Ansh and Christina, from Grade 5, won 1st and 2nd place in their Bee.
The other students from Gr6, Gr7 and Gr8. all made it through to the Quarter or Semi-final in their respective Bee.
A great result which reflects the student’s determination and effort.
Well done to all of them.
Model United Nations
Grade 9 Individuals and Societies students took part in a Model United Nations Conference held on Tuesday at Kwangju Foreign School. This put an end to a unit of study that had them researching global issues and how countries of the world come together in the United Nations to make resolutions. During the conference, students were engaged in lobbying and making alliances prior to lunch, and later they debated these resolutions within their committees. It was a challenging day for all as this was the first time for any of them to take part in an actual MUN conference. All students walked away learning something about themselves and how difficult decisions are made in the world around them.
The Girls Team
The BIFS Middle School girls team played in the MS Futsal Finals last Wednesday in Busan. The girls played at a very high level throughout this tournament achieving a well-deserved spot in the Final. The team started against a very tough opposition like HIS in a match where they tied 2-2, facing a very strong defence. It became a gripping game until the end, with goals by Vicky and a superb last-minute goal by Na Rae dribbling past 2 defenders and scoring the final tying goal.
During the second game, the girls displayed great pressure and organisation against GIFS, where they managed to win 4-1, demonstrating great teamwork with accurate shooting and precise passing from each member of the team. Thanks to this win the girls automatically achieved a spot in the Finals, with 2 goals from Vicky, 1 from Yenna and 1 from Supi.
A remarkable acknowledgement must go to Vicky, Yenna, and Na Rae, who displayed great skills throughout the tournament and great plays which helped the team achieve a great spot in the Finals.
The Boys Team
The BIFS Bears Varsity brought home another championship this season with a scintillating performance in the SKAC Futsal Tournament. The level of teamwork and understanding on display was a treat for the many fans that attended the games.
We concluded the week with many parents joining us at the second round of conferences at BIFS. The two sessions held on Thursday afternoon and concluded on Friday at 2.00pm. We welcomed over 150 parents and students to the conferences in the Middle and High School over the two days. We hope that students and parents gathered useful information regarding individual progress and what are the steps forward to achieve greater success.
