Quentin, Zarine, Amit and Julia were four of the very best yesterday. We are very proud of them indeed!
Yesterday our Primary swimmers popped down the road to St Constantine’s to take part in the NTAA Swim Gala. Every competitor from ISMAC performed heroically and there were certainly some personal bests set out there. It was an excruciatingly hot day and yet our supportive mums and dads turned out in force to cheer them on. We will just have to wait and see how ISMAC place overall in the standings. Today, we will all be there again for the Secondary NTAA swim gala. Best of luck to our secondary swimmers and a huge thank you to Coach Khalid for turning our swimmers out in such good shape for these events.
Whilst the splashes and spills were taking place in Arusha, the altogether more serious business of ISM Scholarship Interviews was taking place on Moshi Campus. Twenty-one scholars out of over 80 applicants, were invited to attend scholarship interviews yesterday. The process has been painstaking and time-consuming for the selection team and no-doubt anxiety inducing for the candidates themselves. By the end of the weekend, a handful of lucky scholars will have been informed about their selection and an announcement will be made next week. I would like to personally thank my counterpart , Mr Bob Cofer, on Moshi Campus for driving this process. Bob has invested countless hours to making this process work and he deserves a well-earned rest this weekend!
Finally, two messages from me. Best of luck to the first mountain bikers to go on an OP trip – they set off at about the time this newsletter gets to you! And lastly, don’t miss our ‘Kushiriki’ literature appreciation night that is coming up this week. See the poster in this newsletter.
Have a peaceful weekend.
