ICHK is celebrating reclaiming the Grand Champions touch rugby title.
We took the title with just one point difference from South Island at the HK Schools Winter Touch Championships at the end of term.
It was a tremendous achievement and everyone who took part is to be congratulated for the part they played.
A total of 34 teams from 10 schools from across Hong Kong took part, with six categories (U20, U16, U14 for boys and girls).
Medals were awarded to first, second and third of each category, with just one Grand Champion trophy awarded to the school which was the overall winner.
Senior students volunteered their service for the smooth running of this event, and were excellent ambassadors for ICHK amongst the international school community.
At ICHK success is not simply measured by medals and trophies. We aim to have as many students as possible representing the school for sport and everyone who competed was reminded that there is so much more to take from taking part in competitive events : lessons in sportsmanship and humility, acceptance, discovering our own limits and the character of those around us.
Head of PE Raymond Chan has written a beautiful article about the important lessons that should be drawn from the event, how sport is a great metaphor for life and why, we believe it's an invaluable tool for education.
