Our 14U Boys Football Team have returned from Madrid finishing 5th in the tournament after narrowly losing the Quarter Final 1-0 to the eventual winner. From all reports our boys represented themselves and the School incredibly well and a great time had by all. We aim to have a full report in the Newsletter next week.
I received wonderful news today from Mr Standen who informed me that our AIS Triathlon team has won the MetaSport Sprint Series Schools Challenge for the third year in a row. This is a tribute to our dedicated coaches and students who turn up each weekend to compete and represent their school. Congratulations to all involved!

On Thursday, 29 May, the annual UE House Swimming Carnival will be held at Yio Chu Kang Swimming Complex. In preparation for this event, we require all students wishing to compete in the Competitive ‘A’ Events to pre-register so that we can enter their names into the Meet Manager Program. This is an intensive process so we seek your assistance in providing us with this information by Wednesday, 14 May. To access the Upper Elementary Swimming Carnival Survey please click on this link.
For more information, including a letter to parents, please visit the Elementary section of the Newsletter here.

AIS – KL Cricket Tour (18 – 20 April)
The AIS boys did well to form a cohesive mixed age team over the course of the entire trip, each improving their skills so quickly over a very short amount of time. All members worked hard to bowl and field effectively through the various games that they played, supported each other unconditionally.
A big well done to all boys who went on the trip with a few specific awards going to various boys in recognition of their skills and team work:
Best Batsmen – Jack Axford
Best Bowler – Kynan Campbell
Best Fieldsmen – Adam English
Man of the Match
Friday game – Alex Flynn
Saturday – Samuel Lye & Jack Axford
Sunday – Jackson Tyler
I was really impressed by the way the boys worked together to accommodate for a mix of skills levels across all the year levels as they developed their team bonds. It was very assuring to see the older boys stepping up to be great role models for the younger students thus re-enforcing the AIS cricket culture of humility and respect.
Many thanks to all who attended the trip, student and parents with special recognition to Coach Narender Reddy for his trip coordination and team leadership, and to Mr Allan Tang for stepping in at the last minute as Teacher-in-Charge, making sure everything ran smoothly.
