ATAC Announcements Week of Nov 29-Dec 3rd

ISM Basketball Invitational:

Last weekend ISM hosted 3 local schools for the HS boys and girls basketball invitational. Our ISM boys team, despite being decimated currently with injuries, put up a great effort v Don Bosco and Claret to lose both games by 2 points in the dying seconds. The boys showed great determination to battle hard against a superior team in La Salle Zobel on Saturday morning but they were simply too good and ran away with a victory. La Salle went on to defeat Claret in the final 90-40 in a one sided affair.

Our Bearcat girls showed some great form and solid defense to win their first two games and then narrowly lost their Saturday morning game against UA & P. This 2-1 record got them into the final for a rematch with University of Asia and Pacific and after going down by 14 points in the 2nd quarter the Bearcats fought their way back into the game.

In the dying seconds and being a point down ISM was able to steal the ball and make a layup attempt but the ball would not drop and U A&P won a very exciting match. This was great IASAS preparation for our girls team to play 4 games over the Friday/Saturday and really help give them confidence for a great IASAS tournament in January.

Well done to both our girls and boys teams last weekend and the coaches.

All Asian Touch Championships Singapore – Coach Wislang’s report:

The ISM Varsity Touch Football team traveled to Singapore last weekend for the Asian All Schools Championships. They competed in the U18 grade (a 24 team grade) which included the other five IASAS schools.

The girls won their first 3 games against local Singapore schools but lost their 4th game in a close, lightening delayed, match with SAS. With games being made shorter, the girls took great opportunities in their final round game to beat another local team. They finished 2nd in their pool and had only had 2 touchdowns scored against them in around 100 minutes of Touch Football. At the end of time in the semi-final against TAS the scores were tied, so extra time was played. With only 3 players on the field and 5 minutes into extra time, TAS slipped around the outside and scored the winning touchdown. ISM ended the tournament in 7th equal place with JIS.

Sierra Lee was named the team’s MVP for the tournament. Throughout the day, ISM was the life and soul of the tournament and the girls had a great time being social! As always with Pre-IASAS, we now have plenty of hard work to do in the coming weeks. Please come out and support your JV & Varsity teams on Friday 26th from 4pm onwards.

Coach Wislang

ISTA DRAMA FESTIVAL:  UPDATE: We still require 5 placements for the ISTA Drama housing..see below for details.

ISM is excited to be hosting this year’s ISTA Middle School Theatre Festival!  The International Schools Theatre Association (ISTA) facilitates two MS festivals each year in Asia, which provide an amazing opportunity for international students from around the world to engage in new theatrical experiences and to develop skills that will deepen their passion for performance.  As a school, ISM has been a proud supporter and participator of ISTA, and we now have the opportunity to give the participants an experience they will never forget!  We will be hosting the first ever Musical Theatre ISTA festival, and we are very excited about welcoming other international students to the Philippines and to our wonderful school. 

The ISM ISTA Festival will take place November 19-21 (Friday to Sunday), and will involve as many as 100 students from other countries, as well as our own ISM participants.  As with any event, the whole ISM community has the opportunity to get involved in this Middle School event.  The most significant way for the ISM community to get involved is to provide housing for the visiting students.  If you are able to host some students, you may contact the ATAC Office and/or the Fine Arts Office at badiangoj@ismanila.org and/or talense@ismanila.org .  Most guests will arrive on November 18th and will depart on either November 21st or 22nd.  If you would like to help out with organization or facilitation during the ISTA Festival, you may also contact Vicki Close in the Fine Arts Office (closev@ismanila.org) for more details on how you can help. 

More information about ISTA  can be found at http://www.ista.co.uk/

 We look forward to this fantastic event, and this excellent opportunity for ISM to “show Manila proud”!
