ssis-sports-awards-1To celebrate all the Senior School students who worked hard throughout the year, Shanghai Singapore International School (SSIS) held the Sports Awards Celebration on 20 May at MinHang Campus. “The Sabre Claw” band opened the event with a rendition of We Will Rock You, which put everybody in a festive mood.

It was a night of celebrating students’ participation in sports such as volleyball, cross-country, basketball, soccer, badminton, touch rugby and track and field. Each team had a student player give a short summary of the season, which was a perfect opportunity to re-live all those exciting and hard-fought moments of the year. Awards were given to The Most Improved Player, The Most Valuable Player, Commitment to Excellence and The Player’s Player, as voted for by all the team members.

The Sabre crew members helped decorate the hall with fabulous posters, balloons, fairy lights and a wonderful display of team shirts. They also prepared a photo-montage of all the games and events, and presented FUN Awards, voted for by the students, such as Best Save, Fanciest Player, and Best Assist. The award for Best Coach went to Mr. Nilan who said: “I am so humbled to receive this award as I really didn’t expect it. I was just one of many coaches who were equally deserving of it. This award is for all of us.”

Sports Personality of The Year was awarded to female players Krystal Teo and Cherlyne Wang. The male recipients were Joshua Whitley and Reiji Arikawa.

As the band struck up the last tune of the evening, all the guests got up to dance. Nilan added his tenor saxophone to the brass section, Kinji Arikawa added beat box beats and Muhammed Hidhir sang Treasure, by Bruno Mars. Hidhir was another winner of the evening and he admitted to “being totally committed to the Sabres Crew. Once a Sabre, always a Sabre!”
