As usual, to stimulate the students of boarding on a lazy Saturday afternoon, the boarding team arranged for an engaging and active competition, a Volleyball competition. It involved the students of CIS boarding, Most of them were from grade 10 and IB1. Mr Regin, a boarding parent was in charge of refereeing the matches.
The teams were not the same as the teams made in the beginning of the year, surprisingly, but they were still already chosen. At the beginning of the school year, the boarding students were divided into 6 groups; Foxes, Rhinos, Bulls, Tigers, Lions and Tuskers. All the events that the boarding has arranged usually involves the same teams from the beginning of the year. Even though the boarders were in different teams, each team had to come up with another team name. This event was particularly fun because of the fact that not everyone actually knew how to play volleyball, and so almost everybody ended up looking slightly ridiculous in the pictures. Nonetheless, the matches were pretty intense and each team was eager to win. According to Ananya Singh, a boarder, “I was really glad that the only girls there were all separated into the teams, because that made it extra fun and let us mix well with each other”. Each team leader had to play a game of toss with the referee so as to decide which team would serve first.
Everybody did their best, and the competitive spirit was appreciated among all.
The competition turned the lazy Saturday afternoon into an active one, filled with fun and energy.
