SES Sports and Actvities Bulletin Swimming News SES Primary Swim Team – Kings Friendly Gala Sharjah English School competed in a friendly gala at Kings School (Thursday 7th October). The a?tude, eﬀort and compeBBve spirit from the students was extremely impressive. The compeBBon from the other schools was strong but Sharjah English School was baFling at half way for 3rd posiBon with Repton and English College Primary. As it turned out Sharjah came home in a very respectable 4th posiBon, considering the diﬃcult circumstances we faced with the pool being out of acBon for the ﬁrst 3 weeks of the new term.

SES Sports and Actvities Bulletin Football News U14 Football – SES vs Victoria English School Sharjah hosted VES in a friendly game before the start of the Sharjah Schools League which commences on the 7th Nov. Playing three periods of 10 minutes, Sharjah were able to rotate players giving everyone a taster of schoolboy football and a chance to put themselves forward for selecBon for the Sharjah league. The U14 captain KrisBan Bailey, lead the way scoring from outside the goal area. But a free kick just before the end of the period allowed VES to score from a free kick slo?ng the ball in the corner. The second period saw VES take the lead with a ﬁne strike just high enough to beat the goal keeper. VES wrapped up the score in the ﬁnal period with a 2-‐0 win. There was some impressive tacBcal play from SES playing good structured football and developing good passing movement. SES are scheduled to play their ﬁrst league game at AUS in a couple of weeks Bme.

SES Sports and Actvities Bulletin U14 Football vs A.I.S (Friendly) Sharjah English School hosted Australian InternaBonal School (A.I.S) in a pre-‐league friendly. Once again the format of the match was three periods of 10 mins allowing every player of the U14 squad to play. The ﬁrst period saw a team of predominantly Year 7 and 8 SES players hold their own against the local neighbors further up the Kalba road. SES were defending deep in their own territory. A.I.S scored from just outside the penalty in what seemed to be a slight error of judgment from SES but nevertheless showed a spirit and a?tude which was a credit to the school. The second period produced a goalless draw. The team which was a combinaBon of Key Stage 3 started to produce a structure and ball movement working towards the A.I.S goal. The third and ﬁnal period also displayed a goalless draw but the Year 9 secBon of the squad had A.I.S on the back foot. A strong midﬁeld secBon lead by captain Kris Bailey produced waves of aFacking football exposing the space available and were unlucky not to score. The ﬁrst league game is away at AUS and should be a tesBng opener.

SES Sports and Actvities Bulletin Netball Year 8 & 9 Netball This week both Year 8 and 9s have goFen oﬀ to a very promising start with a friendly played against Chouiefat School, managing to win both of their games. The teams have shown great skill and teamwork in their preparaBon for the Dubai Netball League, in all areas of the court, with Ivy (Year 9) playing as goal shoot and taking a number of great scores. This helped our team stay out in front throughout the game, also with great play in the centre of the court from Sam and Taya (both Year 9) who played fantasBcally, helping the team work as a unit. In Year 8 we have some great players who again showed great skill and ability and will no doubt have a lot to oﬀer this forthcoming season.
SES vs Dubai BriPsh School
Years 8 & 9 had their ﬁrst league game of the season this week. Year 9 played well but were up against a diﬃcult and well drilled opposiBon and came away with an unfortunate result. Year 8 played excepBonally well; they dictated most of the game but in the ﬁnal quarter DBS managed to slip into the lead and ﬁnished one score ahead.
