U13 FOBISIA Games 2016
Monday 16th May
FOBISIA Sports

From 15-18 March, Kellett School’s Kowloon Bay campus played host to the U13 FOBISIA Games, a sports tournament that saw squads of Year 7 students compete in Athletics, Swimming, Basketball and Football over the course of three days. As hosts of the tournament, Kellett School welcomed five other British schools from around Asia to Hong Kong. British International School, Ho Chi Minh City; British School, Jakarta; Dulwich College, Beijing; Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong and Taipei European School, all arrived with eager anticipation and excitement for the days to follow.

The FOBISIA Games are an opportunity for students to showcase teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play, whilst interacting with counterparts from other backgrounds and cultures, all within a sporting environment. Whilst the level of sporting ability is always to a high standard, it is of equal importance that these values are upheld and demonstrated throughout the event.

This year the participants excelled in both of these areas. Students from all schools showed brilliant determination and commitment across the three days of competition, with a healthy level of competitiveness.

Congratulations to the Kellett squad, who represented the school fantastically well and brought home a great amount of silverware!
