Sports Day 2018

The much awaited annual A-JIS Sports Day will take place on school grounds on May 17th and May 18th. Students will participate in competitive sport activities while parents and guests are invited to come and support their children.

As the school grows it is necessary to split this event in two different days, just as it was done last year, in order to allow enough space for all children to have an educationally meaningful and fun experience.

 

A-JIS Sports Day 2018 Schedule

Thursday May 17th:
G2 to G5 students: 8:30 to 15.00.

Friday May 18th:
G1 students: 9:00 to 12.30 h.
Kinder students: 11.00 to 12.30 h.
G6 to G10 students: 9:00 to 10:30 and 13:30 to 15:00.

 

More information will be coming soon!
