Throughout the month of December, the Elementary and MYP students of MBTS proudly represented their school community in three different sporting events: the Sailing Regatta, the PSA Track and Field Meet, and the Inter-Primary Swim Meet. In all three events, our students displayed steadfast and stellar sportsmanship by always trying their very best, cheering loudly for their teammates, and showing grace and courtesy to others in the community.

The willingness of these young athletes to go into a highly competitive setting and challenge themselves to reach and surpass their personal limits – while always remaining grounded and team-minded – was truly inspiring.

Please scroll down to learn a bit more about each team that competed in the three events, and go all the way to the bottom to see the photo gallery!

Sailing Regatta:

  • Isabelle (Upper Elementary)
  • Lyndon (Upper Elementary)
  • Sophia (Upper Elementary)
  • Vin (Upper Elementary)

Upper Elementary students from MBTS displayed excellent sailing skills and tactics during the recently-held Sailing Regatta, and even applied some of their knowledge in Mathematics to the sport by figuring out the shortest distance and the best angles for the competition. Our masterful MBTS team did an exceptional job putting forth their best efforts and proudly sailed into second place!

Special thanks go to our parent volunteer for this event, Annie Briggs.

PSA Track and Field Meet:

  • Abiu (Upper Elementary)
  • Dante (Upper Elementary)
  • Harper B. (Upper Elementary)
  • Harvey (Upper Elementary)

All of the students who participated in the PSA Track and Field Meet held December 7th put their best foot forward, and every single participant beat their own personal best scores! Many of them beat their best times during practices at school by a significant margin, and Grade Six student Abiu earned a Gold medal in Long Jump, while MYP student Seane earned Silver medals in the 200 m and 800 m races. Our fantastic MBTS team dashed into third place overall, and never wavered in their commitment to doing their best!

The students of MBTS showed some stupendous school spirit during the Inter-Primary Swim Meet held December 8th. Many of the children were first-time participants in the event, with several of them never having competed before. They showed tremendous heart and bravery, and learned how to overcome feelings of nervousness by remembering to try their best and have lots of fun! Some of our younger children even fearlessly volunteered when it turned out that there weren’t enough participants in some of the relays, displaying terrific and true sportsmanship!

MBTS proudly placed fourth overall, with Grade Two student Tessa earning first place for her efforts in the 25 m breaststroke, and Grade Four student Harper placing first in the 25 m freestyle, and placing second in the 25 m breast and backstroke races. Grade Four student Sarah placed second in the 25 m freestyle and breaststroke, and Gabriella placed second in the 25 m breaststroke.

Special thanks go to parent Neil Martin, who shared some of the fantastic photos he took during the event.
