Kings’ School Al Barsha will fly the flag for the UAE when it takes on Spain’s Laude Newton College in the first virtual fixture tomorrow.
The schools from each continent will go head-to-head in a challenge to decide which school is the fittest.
Using the Home Court application representatives from both schools will try and prove their agility is supreme. Each student has completed the challenge in a set time period, submitted their video and the results will be collated tomorrow.
Years 3-6 are involved in the fixture and Kings’ PE teacher Jessica Ross said it is a thrill to take on a European school.
“I am so excited to play the first ever international virtual fixture, my students have worked so hard on their videos and I can not wait to see the live fixture results,” she said.
Her counterpart at Laude Newton is just as excited. PE subject leader Robert Sidoli said along with a sporting challenge, it will introduce his Spanish students to those in the Middle East.
“We are so excited to be part of the international virtual sports fixtures against Kings’. Here at Laude Newton College we are always looking for opportunities for our students to expand their minds in an international manner. A big thanks to Kings’ School Al Barsha for the opportunity,” he said.
