The spirit of the SABIS® regional tournaments that have been held over the past decade continues this year in concurrence with the organization’s 125th anniversary as a provider of high-quality education. SABIS® is pleased to announce the launch of the 8th SABIS® Regional Tournament on the 8th and 9th of April 2011, which this year will be hosted by the SABIS® International School-Adma and the International School of Choueifat-Choueifat. This event will also inaugurate the new Olympic-size soccer field that was recently completed on the SIS-Adma campus.
The SABIS® senior executives oversaw a draw for the games’ schedule while the participating schools were represented by their regional directors. With the regional tournament less than a fortnight away, everyone at SIS-Adma and ISC-Choueifat is working hard to coordinate an unforgettable event. Preparations are well underway, and all the participating teams are eagerly training for an event that will bring together more than 23 SABIS® schools from 13 countries.
We expect record-breaking attendance for this year’s event with around 1,000 students from 23 schools within the SABIS® Network participating. This number includes SABIS® schools in Egypt, the U. A. E., Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Syria, Jordan, Pakistan, Germany, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and Kurdistan-Iraq. The young athletes are looking forward to competing in a range of track and field events such as sprint relays as well as football, basketball, and swimming.
In line with SABIS®’s mission to provide students with the knowledge, experiences, and skills to reach their full potential, the 8th SABIS® Regional Tournament will allow SABIS® students to meet and compete in a friendly atmosphere and to explore and realize individual aspirations and athletic potential. SABIS®, a global education management organization, fulfills its mission to provide students with a high-quality education through its network of 79 schools and one university which span across 15 countries on four continents educating more than 60,000 students.
