ATAC Announcements Week 5 Aug 31-Sept 2, 2011

Last Friday saw our volleyball teams  have their first matches of the season against Brent. Our Varsity boys were not strong enough to get a win but played well in patches whilst our varsity girls played another nail biter but came up a bit short to lose 12-15 in a very close 5 set match. The JV girls were defeated by Brent and the JV boys had a good win. Out on the soccer field our varsity girls played a close and low scoring first half against Miriam College but the game opened up in the second half with 6 goals being scored and Miriam ran out winners in a very tight match 4-3.

Please note due to unforeseen circumstances our Judo Coach is unavailable to start coaching until  next week September 5th. Coach Mon our previous Judo instructor has taken up employment in Singapore and we are now finalising his replacement. We apologize for this delay to our Judo program.

ATAC Announcements Week 1 Aug 4-5, 2011

Ok folks we are ready to go for school year 2011-12! Welcome to the ATAC Blog and all the Bearcat action. On behalf of the ATAC staff we wish everyone, especially our new ISM students and families, a big welcome to ISM. There are many opportunities for students to get involved in activities and I hope that as you navigate your way through the contents of the blog the big picture of the ATAC Department becomes clearer for students and parents.

Using this blog you can find out about; IASAS our international schools league for HS competition, schedules for tryouts, season practice schedules and weekly matches, ATAC guidelines, facilities photos, Bearcat Council, Bearcat Den, IASAS hosting/housing, coaches blogs and much more…..take some time to tour the blog and find out about our program.

The  1st season tryouts schedule is posted now around school and available on the blog. The season practice schedule will be posted Monday Aug 8th along with the schedule for our All Year Round sports.

The summer break has been a busy time for the ATAC office staff preparing facilities/equipment in readiness for the start of the year. With the generous support of our school administration we have added the following infrastructure to our already great facilities; a new PA system for the MS field, extended fencing panels, new rain cover at MS concrete bleachers and a scoreboard at the MS Field, new electronic winches for the basketball backboards in ES gym, full rain cover awnings for the HS bleachers, and arriving soon will be our new electronic track and field scoreboard. Also to be added during August will an automated lightning warning system for our outdoor spaces to assist in clearing the fields when lightning is in close proximity to the school.

For now that will do for my first post for this short week one. A weekly post will be made as the year progresses and I hope you visit the blog on a regular basis to keep up to date with all the action! Go BEARCATS in 11-12! regards Mark Pekin (ISM Athletic Director)
