Some students from our Middle Years Programme together with Mr Moll -our PE teacher- have taken part in the traditional football tournament for international schools.
After a brilliant debut of our PYP section at the end of November -with our students winning three out of five matches and placing at 3rd best-, at the end of april our Middle Years Programme under-14 team celebrated its sixth participation in the Mediterranean Cup.
From 26th to 29th April, Mr Moll’s team competed against representatives from international schools of the Mediterranean area and won second place in the round, one sole point away from the swiss leader in Lausanne and ahead of the Berlin, Rome and Stockholm schools. This enabled us to access the ‘Elite’ round where our team got stopped. This, however, did not stop the organisers from paying a compliment to our students, who were praised for «the enthusiasm of their coach, their fair play and the amazing sportsmanship shown by the players. The group was very young and had a positive impact on the round. Qualifying to the ‘Elite’ round was a massive success!»
The Mediterranean Cup is an annual eight-a-side football competition, which gathers international schools from several different countries.
Our next appointment is for November, with the competitions for our PYP and High school students.
