On Wednesday evening, 20 April 2016, we hosted a wonderful evening of celebration for our British School Manila sporting representatives. Over 57% of our Senior Students represented the school in sport this year, another fantastic year.
There were ‘Player Of The Year’ and ‘Most Improved Player Of The Year’ chosen by the coaches of each team. Sixty-two students were awarded Sporting Colours for their high level representation.
There were also four teams and two individuals recognised for their outstanding achievements at BSM.
The student’s choice for Sports Personality of the Year Award saw four students take home the award in the Year 7-9 category and Year 10-13 category.
Thank you to our guest speaker, Jake Letts, captain of the Philippine Rugby team for giving up his time to present our awards and speak. Jake shared with us the highlights of his career, how he made tough decisions through his life and the importance of balancing sport and academic work. He spoke passionately about how sport complimented his academic achievements through his time at university as he earned a BSc and a Masters Degree.
Take note those of you sitting exams over the next few months – keep physically active, it will only help!
Once again, congratulations to all the participants who played for our school over the last year. Keep up the good work!
