Happy Independence

We ended the last day before the holiday with a short assembly to raise the flag and to sing the national anthem. Although our main independence celebration will be held on 8th November, we wanted to commemorate the anniversary of the republic before we left. It was a great way to end the week.

ISAZ National Finals

Our swimmers, volleyballers and basketballers had a hectic weekend at the ISAZ national finals of those sports. The volleyball was particularly thrilling with a tough semi-final heat for our boys vs Konkola and then a brutal final against Mpalembe that ended in a defeat for ISL 24:26 - it doesn't get any closer than that. We were gratified by the technique, tenacity and teamwork exhibited by our students.

I would like to thank students from Bayobab who consistently cheered our boys. I commend in particular one of our primary parents who showed up just to support our teams. Madam, many thanks!

Please consider using that area to take some of the pressure off the secondary car park especially at pick up time when more cars are parked. Thanks!
