Earlier this year, the students in the DP and the MYP challenged the teachers to a game of basketball. The teachers graciously accepted the challenge and dusted off their sneakers. It was a tight and hard fought contest….. for 30 seconds before the students began to run away with the game (literally). They game was immensely enjoyed by all the staff and the students as well. At this points the students are winning the students vs teacher series 1-0. Next the students will be taking on the teachers in Volleyball if they dare! 🙂
