CIS ATHLETIC PROGRAM By Mr. Robert
The principles of the Concordian Athletics Program are unique in that we are not catering only to the capabilities of the more physically skilled students. Along with good sportsmanship, participation in the Athletics Program helps in the development of moral qualities, social skills, emotional maturity, and mental alertness. Our objectives are to develop citizenship traits such as cooperation, leadership, self-discipline, fairness and honesty in dealing with others, and respect. We are developing as wide an Athletics Program as possible to give each student the opportunity to discover a sport or sports in which he/she has an interest. Currently Concordian International School offers the following sports: - Basketball
- Track and Field

Staff vs. Student Boys Soccer Update! The boys varsity soccer team had games against TCIS, Wells, the Concordian staff, and a semi-pro team, KAYA FC. Captain Ong and the team are happy to be playing again and have shown rapid improvements in the past few matches. Justin (G12) and Pol (G9) deserve special mention for their performance in the game against Wells. Well done! Please check the website for upcoming matches and come and cheer on the Dragons ! Dragons and Staffs Unite to Help Flood Victims The boys varsity soccer team recently had a “Keep Them Warm” donation drive for flood victims needing blankets, jackets, and sweaters. The culminating activity was a School Unity Soccer Game with the Concordian staff. It was great to see the guys from the office, canteen, gardeners, and other workers in a different setting. And there were a lot of staff and student spectators too. The Staff made a good showing, scoring first and winning in the end 8-7. The Dragons had good positioning throughout the game, showing improvement in passing and teamwork as the game went on. It gave me a good feeling to participate in this unifying school event that was part of a very good plan to help the people who were forced from their homes. Go Dragons !!
