In addition to excelling academically, students in SABIS® schools are encouraged to explore their talents through clubs, sports, theater, and more. One SABIS® school, where students have demonstrated a passion for sports and athletics is the International School of Choueifat-Cairo (ISC-Cairo) in Egypt. At the start of the 2018-19 academic year, ISC-Cairo witnessed students achieve considerable success on the court, in the pool, and around the track.
The ISC-Cairo basketball and volleyball teams attended the Cairo International Schools Sports Association (CISSA) competition, where they competed in volleyball and basketball at all levels against other schools. The results were positive for ISC-Cairo who came first in middle school boys’ volleyball, junior varsity boys’ volleyball, junior varsity girls’ basketball, and varsity girls’ basketball. Their success didn’t end there, as the middle school girls’ volleyball, junior varsity girls’ volleyball, junior varsity boys’ basketball, and varsity boys’ volleyball teams all came in second place at the competition as well. The student athletes left as winners and managed to raise their championship titles to an impressive 84, which is 30 more than any other school competing in CISSA.
ISC-Cairo students continued to make the school proud with their impressive performances at swimming competitions hosted by the school. At the Junior League Gala, the school’s junior swimming team won 12 school junior league gala titles, taking home a grand total of 24 gold, 11 silver, and 2 bronze medals and setting no less than 32 school records. At the Whole School Championship Gala, the team won an outstanding 21 gold, 11 silver, and 2 bronze while breaking 10 school records.
On the track, the ISC-Cairo junior track team earned 5 gold, 5 silver, and 7 bronze medals at the Cairo Junior Schools Track Meet. With such a terrific performance, these student athletes have set the bar high for future competitors.
ISC-Cairo students have participated enthusiastically in major sporting events on and off campus, which saw them yield many rewards. We would like to congratulate ISC-Cairo on their outstanding sporting achievements and look forward to see more of their success!
