Week 25 Feb 19-23, 2018

Our S2 sports awards was held at the FAT last week on Tuesday evening and was a great event to celebrate a wonderful S2 of athletics on the domestic front and for our outstanding results at IASAS.
The new format for this year will be used for all HS sports awards evenings and involves….5:30-6pm Light snacks at FAT foyer/balcony, 6-7pm main awards/MVP presentations, 7-7:45pm team break out with athletes and parents for other awards and coaches speeches.
Good luck to our Gymnasts who travel to Singapore this coming weekend at the UWC meet. We also have  some gymnasts who will compete at the Philippine Cup meet here in Manila at Rizal Stadium on Sunday. Best wishes to all our gymnasts for the competitions here and overseas.
