Sports Day 2018
June has traditionally been the month for Athletics at BISM and this year was no different as an elite group of Athletes from BISM kicked off the month in style in an athletics competition at St Anthony´s College, Mijas.
20 children from Year 2, 3 and 4 competed in groups of 5 across 6 events. These included the shuttle race, lateral jumps, standing long jump, javelin, overhead throw and relay race. When the results came in, the children were biting their nails, but they were amazed to find out that the A team came first and the B team came second! The members of the A team included a Year Two child, who was younger than the other children at the meet, which was a real achievement. Well done Cesar!
The winning team included; Adriana Zwemmer, (Y4) Jude Brockie (Y4), Cesar Arzo Binstock (Y2), Anastasia Marincheva (Y4) and Artemii Elistratov (Y4). Well done to everyone who competed. St Anthony´s college commented on how well behaved the children were. They were a credit to the school, and made me very proud.
The fun didn´t end there though. Sports day was held on 25th June and proved to be another nail biter, with the scores between the houses being extremely close. The children competed in a range of throwing, jumping and running races, followed by relay races. There were some fantastic individual performances that need a special mention.

When the scores rolled in it was so close, with the Romans in 4th position, Saxons in 3rd, the Vikings in second position and the winners by 1 point were the Normans!
A huge well done to all the children who competed. Over the year the children have worked so hard and it was great to see their hard work pay off!
