week 39 june 3-5, 2019

Bye, Bye blog…this will be the final post using the ATAC blog. From August we will be launching our new ISM Athletics website which will remain the ‘one stop site’ for all athletics information.

Bookmark our new athletics website so you have it ready to go for the new school year. Site not active yet…athletics.ismanila.org

Have a safe and restful summer Bearcats. Stay fit and healthy as you enjoy the vacation. To all departing Bearcats best wishes on your new adventures and to all returning Bearcats see you all in August for what promises to be a wonderful centenary year at ISM. 

Housing launch for S1 triple IASAS in October at ISM. After our launch on May 2nd, four weeks later we now have 151 beds! Thanks to all the early bird responders we greatly appreciate your support. We still require 179 beds to hit our 330 target but this is a great start. Please keep the momentum going over the vacation and we will be in full housing mobilisation drive on our return in August to ensure we get all the beds for our IASAS guests. See information below and the link to sign up.

If you are a returning family and your children will be involved in our ATAC sports program it is an expectation that you sign up to house a pair of HS athletes for this 1st season IASAS event. HS athletes from JV, Varsity teams, MUN, CC, student ambassadors and Bearcat Council members next year will be expected to support and house the 330 athletes that will visit us from Wednesday Oct 9th until Sunday Oct 13th. Please look out for the online housing form link in Friday bulletins and available on our new website homepage. We do hope for great community support to make this a wonderful IASAS in season one for ISM to kick off our centenary year. We will gladly accept host offers from ES/MS families. Hosting IASAS student/athletes is a great experience and your children can make friends for a lifetime! Sign up HERE to house. 

The HS field and MS field are closed until start of next SY. A new track and new MS field surface will be installed during the break and whilst construction is ongoing both facilities will remain closed. New works also scheduled for the summer break are..new MS/HS locker rooms, extension of existing fitness room, refurbishment of the climbing wall at MS gym and a new scoreboard for MS field.
