GISST Basketball Competition Cancelation
Based on the current situation during this time of heightened concerns regarding the transmission of the COVID-19 virus, and after consultations with other international schools and health officials, the final decision was made to cancel all four GISST Basketball tournaments (i.e. U14 Boys, U14 Girls, Varsity Boys, and Varsity Girls) as well as both the GISST U14 Boys and Girls Volleyball events.
This is an extremely unfortunate circumstance and was undoubtedly a tough decision for the host schools to make. However, above all else is the safety of our students and staff at the tournaments and we want to take all necessary precautions to minimize risk. We are grateful that this decision was made in good time.
In an ideal world, we would look to reschedule the Basketball competitions or relocate them. Unfortunately, due to the busy tournament period approaching and unpredictability of this virus, it is highly unlikely that these tournaments can be rescheduled.
Swimming Training Cancelation
The FIS is taking measures to increase the safety of our school community and has therefore made a decision to cancel Swimming training for all age groups (Grades 2 to 5, U14, and Varsity) until further notice.
Thank you for your understanding.
