Weekly News (January 30- Feb 4th)

Hello all Panthers,

Very exciting week upon us for our High School swimmers; as most of you know, this is IASAS week. 12 boys and 12 girls will travel  Wednesday morning to Malaysia to compete against all other IASAS schools. This is the 35 year of the swimming championships, so our swimmers are very proud to represent ISB at this historic swim meet. We are very excited about performing well this year as the team has prepared incredibly well this year. 

If you see the swimmers in the hall or at the pool this week, please stop them and wish them good luck.


Important Notes:


Parent volunteering going great so far! Thank you for your support! Don’t be afraid of Marshalling :)

I would like to thank all parents that have signed up for volunteer positions in the two Palooza’s coming up and also Splash Saturday/Sunday. We only have a few spots still open, so if you have not signed up yet, please do so this week. Do not be afraid of Marshalling, this meet does not have near the amount of 8 and unders, so it will be much easier. 

After Splash we will have 3 other meets to volunteer for, so don’t worry if you have not got in yet. But for those remaining meets we will be looking to the families that have not volunteered yet.


Palooza Meets in February: Senior(11&Over) Feb 15th and Junior(10&under) Feb16th

Great warm up for Splash and BISAC Swim Championships. Try your best to swim at these events.


Dragon’s Den Swim Meet in Singapore: Minimum Swimmers Met will be traveling to this meet (April 21-23):

We are approaching 20 swimmers for this meet, so let’s see if we can beat our attendance from 2 years ago. Last Dragons Den meet we traveled with 24 swimmers.
