ISTA DRAMA HOST FAMILIES/TENNIS HOST FAMILIES:
Dear Parents, on behalf of the MS/Fine Arts/ATAC Departments I would like to express my gratitude to all the host families that assisted last weekend by housing visiting ISTA students and HS Tennis players from JIS/SAS. It was a very busy weekend for the Fine Arts/ATAC Departments and we could not have hosted such successful events without the parents support in hosting the visiting students.
IASAS BASKETBALL HOUSING:
IASAS Basketball will be taking place at ISM Jan 27-29, 2011 and housing placements are now being accepted. As of this week we have 30 students housed but we require 100 housing slots in total.
All 1st season athletes who were housed this is your time to fulfill your responsibility and offer housing for Basketball. All varsity and jv basketball teams should also have returned housing forms by now as well. Please support the ATAC Department by getting these forms in ASAP. It would be great to have the housing completed before we go on Christmas break! Go Bearcats show your pride and support of the program and get behind our teams by hosting a pair of visiting players from our IASAS sister schools. Housing forms are available from ATAC office or on the ATAC Blog at http://atac.ism-online.org/iasas-basketball-jan-26-31-2011/

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.
