Ravi prepares for his discus throw at the NTAA Athletics meet on Saturday
This week has seen ISMAC getting out into the community. Mr Acomb is currenty at a school in Austria as part of a CIS Accreditation Team visit, Mr Emond and Mr Tyea are in India on IB training courses whilst our Director Dr Marsden has been to Dar es Salaam to visit the Ministry of Education. Mr Anderson and I went no further than Mt Meru Hotel this week to present our School successfully to Arusha residents and prospective new students.
The sport in school, and the way we prepare for sport, has come in for constructive criticism this week and so I take this opportuity to re-iterate our appeal for coaches. Please see Miss Peterson if you may be interested in helping prepare and coach some of our teams for NTAA competition. I am about to head to Braeburn for the latest round of U19 Boys Football matches and Under 15 Basketball. Best of luck to our students in these matches and huge thanks and appreciation to these coaches who give time every weekend to manage these teams.
Finally, a shadow has been cast over all the events at ISMAC this week after the news of the Coastal Aviation aeroplane accident at Empakai. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Coastal staff as well as the families of the loved ones who perished in the accident. Most particulalrly to the families of Shatri and Nasibu Mfinanga, who were brothers-in-law to our former DP Co-ordinator Shannon Howlett. Condolences from all of us at ISMAC.
