MRISA Sr. Boys & Girls Soccer Tournament

Phnom Penh on April 8-10, 2019

UNIS High School Girls and Boys teams both finished 5th in the tournament, by beating our local rivals Hanoi International School in the 5th+ 6th play-off.

The girls via a 2-0 scoreline and the boys winning a penalty shoot-out after equalising with about 30 seconds before the final whistle!!!

Both UNIS Hanoi teams faced opposition in every game who clearly were older and more experienced footballers, but this did not deter all players giving everything they had, every game.

What a lovely group of students it was for Coach Tate, Coach Nguyen and Mr Jackson (deputising for Coach Rey – whom the boys expressed their gratitude to him) to work with, over a tiring but thoroughly enjoyable 3 days.  Not only were students behaviour exemplary on the pitch but off it as well, with many a compliment from the parents of homestays. As the International School of Phnom Penh (ISPP) quoted, “Always a pleasure dealing with UNIS Hanoi teams”.

The pictures below encapsulate the balance between the fun that was had, but also the pride in representing UNIS Hanoi and trying to win by playing good football.

Finally, all students and caches concerned wish our UNIS Hanoi APAC Soccer boys and girls teams the very best of luck in their tournaments.

March Madness Swim Gala

What a fantastic morning on Saturday!  It was so much fun for me to watch all of our swimmers race. It was extra fun to watch the Development Squad swimmers in their first meet. All of them did really well. Some swimmers even surprised us with how fast they went and with the good technique they had. It is clear they have been paying attention to the coaches and working hard!

In the meet, our swimmers had over 400 personal best times! Our swimmers also broke 12 team records to earn a place on our record board! Record breakers included Rio Nakasuji, Flora Hamilton, Chikashi Nakano, Duc Le, Nam van der Wielen, Rory Hamilton, Jacob Biros and Gai Ogasawara!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Huge thanks to all the parents who turned up to support our swimmers! We can’t run a successful meet without them! For those who haven’t yet been part of team support, we have two more meets for you!

KOTO served a really good lunch in a super efficient way. My favorite was the Banana Cotta dessert! YUM!

All in all, it was a great day for Phoenix Swim Club! Even the weather was good; not too hot and not too cold and NO lightning delays.

Our next meet is April 20; our annual Spring Gala.

MRISA Arts Exchange 2019 at HIS

Since January, the UNIS Hanoi MRISA Arts team has been preparing for the MRISA Arts Exchange that took place last week at Hanoi International School. The six MRISA schools each brought a team of 20 Middle and High School students to participate in and lead workshops in Dance, Drama, Music and Visual Arts.

UNIS Hanoi students took risks and grew in their creative endeavors. They wrote and performed songs and drama skits, they created stunning art pieces. They also had the opportunity to collaborate with fellow MRISA artists and take on creative problem solving together.

These artists feel fortunate to have been able to part of this exchange in the arts, and they experienced new aspects of the arts and all grew as artists.

JV Boys Basketball Recap

Our season started with a bunch of freshmen and only three returning players from last year’s team, so we didn’t have much experience going into the season. After closely losing a season-opening game we realized that we had a lot to grow as a team. So we worked hard in practice and focused our efforts.

In January we had two tournaments: JV Invitational tournament and HAC tournament.

Our JV invitational tournament was our biggest test of the season at the time because it was our first time against high-level competition. This tournament showed us where we were as a team. We only lost by two points against the last year’s runner up and reigning champs. This showed that we could compete with other top teams placing 3rd out of the 6 schools and finishing 3-2 at the tournament. During the HAC tournament, we showed that we have developed and improved as a team. We beat Concordia in the semi-finals but lost to Olympia by two points in the finals. Both teams that we lost to in the Hanoi League games.

Our culminating MRISA tournament put us against highly skilled and experienced teams. Other teams consisted of experienced juniors and seniors. However, we started out with two wins on the first day but unfortunately, we lost our next five games and finished 6th place. The results weren’t what we wanted;  however, all of our games were very close.

In reflection, I believe our team was special because we weren’t afraid of any team and we were always optimistic and believed that we could win. Secondly, we were resilient. We always fought back and found a way to come back regardless of the score and the time. Lastly, we were always having fun. We enjoyed every moment as a team. We enjoyed playing together and we made countless memories as a team.

As the captain of this team, I will always remember this team, this is my favorite year playing basketball because of the coach and players I’ve played with. If this core can stay together for next year then we can definitely contend for a championship.
