This will be our final ATAC post for this school year. Thanks to everyone for your contribution to our Bearcats athletics program this year. We look forward to a great year of sport in SY18-19 and to welcoming all our new Bearcats that join us in August.
To all our Bearcat athletes have a great summer, try and find a sports camp for the sport you love to play. A day camp, 3 day or week long experience will be of great benefit to your skill development, you will get the opportunity to listen to new coaches, gain more understanding of the game you enjoy and be able to work on your fitness. Above all have a safe vacation and come back fresh for another year of sports at ISM.
Well done to our new Bearcat Council Executive group who coordinated a successful soccer charity fundraiser last Thursday for MS/HS soccer enthusiasts. Funds raised were in excess of 23,000 pesos and will be donated to local organisation to support soccer development. Thanks also to Ms Roseleip, Mr. Martin, Mr Woods, Mr. Sheard, Mr St.Laurent who all had a role in supporting this event and the students who participated.
