Kuwait English School (KES) U13 elite squad of boys and girls team participated in the BSME U13 Games in Deira International School, Dubai – UAE from 20 – 22 January 2023, and have done remarkably well at the competition.
24 of the best athletes from KES took part in a variety of activities including football, netball, volleyball and athletics. The KES students fought tooth and nail for every minute of every game, demonstrating the true resolve that lives across KES. The students had a mixture of results, as the majority of them competed on the international stage for the first time in their young sports career, a fantastic achievement as we all begin our transition into a world post-COVID.
Ably supported by the magnificent mums and dads of KES, our students were the textbook example of sportsmanship, leadership, teamwork and problem solving. The team supported one another in all activities, and even reached out to support our neighbouring Kuwait school in times of pressure. They were a perfect role-model for all students to aspire to.
These outstanding characteristics were formally recognised by the host school, with our team captains Yousef Fahmy and Ruba Aaref accepting the Fair Play Award on behalf of KES at the Gala Dinner Event to close the whole tournament.
Each student had a fantastic time; they made friends from a variety of different schools; and created memories to last a lifetime. The future looks bright for the students at KES!
Thank you to all who participated, students and staff in this wonderful event. Thank you to every single parent for your support.
