ISA was privileged to be awarded first and second place in AHATA's Recycling Art Competition, which took place from May 8th until May 12. The purpose of the competition was to incorporate creativity and artistic abilities with promoting the usage of eco-friendly materials. All of the pieces of art that were entered in the contest were made from reused materials that were originally used for different purposes. The sixth grade class was awarded second place in the competition with the mermaid they created and the palm fronds they painted. The makerspace and the art history classes were able to earn first place in the competition with the lamp, chair, and divi divi tree they created. Congratulations to both groups for representing our school in such an outstanding manner!
Our talented, young soccer players took the field during the IBISA tournament, and fought their hardest to bring another title home! IBISA is an annual competition played between a number of schools on the island. For the tournament, our students in fifth grade and below performed to the best of their abilities and worked hard as a team. Unfortunately, during the semi-final, ISA lost to Washington and were kicked out of the tournament. They had the opportunity to fight for the third place medal and played very hard, but they were unable to capitalize. They left the tournament as fourth place holders, and although they fought hard, they are ready to come back next year and fight for it once more! The coach of the Elementary team, Coach Sam, said, " Our soccer players did their best, but were not able to defend the Cup from last year. We have to accept that and we need to work harder to take the championship back home." We are proud of our students for their effort and can't wait to see them back on the field next year!
