DRAGONFEST

What an awesome end to the House Festivities last June 3!  Not only did the students battle it out in volleyball, tug-of-war, and relay races, but also tried to outsmart each other in the Academic Bowl and be the most creative in an On-the-Spot Art-making contest.

Everyone had fun!  Even the teachers won at least one set against the students in volleyball.  In the end, only one House garnered the most points to win the coveted prize. Congratulations to the Red Phoenix for winning this year’s HOUSE CUP.

Check out the video (Dragonfest) to get a glimpse of what happened that day.  Also below you’ll see how the Red House won first prize.

The HOUSE System and Sportsfest 2013

Just recently, CISM adopted the House system which is a popular practice among International Schools which assigns students to different Houses in school.

The House System fosters loyalty and camaraderie among students in a House.  Students may compete in sports or academic contests to win points for their House which is added at the end of the year to determine a winner of the House Cup. Merit points for behavior and academic achievement may also be totalled up for comparison between houses.

The Sportsfest held last March 15 showcased the talents and athleticism of our students.  Students from each House – Blue Griffin, Red Phoenix, and Yellow Pegasus – cheered and played well in the relay races, badminton and basketball.  The Houses were even in points at the end of the games mentioned.  The last event which was the tug-of-war would determine the winner.  During the first round, each house won one game.  To break the tie, another round of tug-of-war needed to be played.  In the end, the Griffins won the most points and eventually the House Cup as the Sportsfest was the only event held for this year.

Next year, the school plans to hold several events and contests for students to help win the coveted cup.
