Our U13 Boys Football team took part in an ISAC tournament @ Alice Smith last Saturday. They drew their games against KLASS A 1-1 and Tenby 2-2. Also winning matches against BSKL 4-0 & KLASS B 5-0. Despite being undefeated this wasn't quite enough to make the final and they finished 3rd overall. However, it is clear our boys have certainly improved since last term. Keep up the good effort boys!
Last Saturday was a great day in the sun for our Secondary & Upper Primary Sports Day. This time our video even has drone footage of the school. Once again we would like to thank one of our parents, Mr Mac, who took the time to put together this video.

Lastly, we will like to thanks Mr Sam for taking the time to speak with our students.

It seems our Year 8 maths students have taken their skills with compasses to new levels. So if you too would like to create brilliant designs like this we recommend you pay attention in maths lessons!

On Saturday 30th September, the boys from the Sivananda Home visited our school; we were waiting eagerly to meeting them again, wondering how many names we would remember from our visit to their home last year. The names came back quickly, but we were surprised that there some initial shyness and awkwardness on both sides. However, as we got on with the activities, everyone seemed to become more comfortable with each other.
The Secondary Prefects had organised various activities for both the boys and all the Prefects present. The highlight of the day was definitely the football between the boys and Prefects. Our skills were no match for theirs! They were very well-coordinated, talented players and had excellent communication between each other. Even though allowed us to try to score goals, they still beat us 4-0 and 4-1. The sportsmanship came to the fore when, after the first match where the boys had ruled the field, they came up with a request to mix the groups. That match was a little more balanced and taught us more humility. Chef Nages provided delicious vegetarian lunch on banana leaf. It took us some time to realise that such meals are best eaten with our fingers rather than with a spoon and a fork.
All of us shared our dream and then wrote it on our coloured palm-print. It helped us see that dreams and aspirations do not follow socio-economic backgrounds. We believe that all our dreams will become reality if we have the heart, drive and consistency.

The elc Under 13/15 football teams were in action last weekend at a tournament hosted by ISKL. Check this brilliant video put together by one of our parents Mr Mac.
This afternoon we held our tea with new parents event in school. It was great opportunity for current students to share their experiences of elc. Alongside this parents were able to meet our teachers for an insight into life at elc. It was a pleasant end to the week in school.
The U15 Boys football teams were in action yesterday in Sungai Buloh against GIS. Our A team were unlucky and lost 4-3 in a hard fought battle. The B team lost 4-0 a scoreline which perhaps does not reflect how well they played. Hopefully our teams will have gained valuable experience for the next time.
