Liga Universitaria - Bronze Cup Winners

The U16 Football team is the youngest category to play in the Liga Universitaria Tournament.  For the second time in a row, The British Schools U16s won the Bronze Cup.  It is relevant to mention that they play against clubs where recruitment and training of players is very different from that of a school.  

We congratulate all players for their commitment, repeatedly shown each Sunday at the matches.

Visit from Cottolengos

Every year, the students from CAS who work with the projects Cottolengo Femenino and Cottolengo Masculino receive the children from both institutions in our School.

The British Schools' students organised a fun-filled festival with games invented and created by them, and the journey ended with a shared afternoon snack.

It was a lovely afternoon full of sharing time together, games, chat, music and dance.

Champions!

On Saturday, 3rd November, the final of the URU tournament took place between the Old Boys Club (OBC) and Old Christians, which ended in a 28-21 victory for the Old Boys. This saw OBC U19 finishing champions of the year, undefeated in their 29 matches. The U19 B category finished a very respectable 5th in the same tournament.

A green coloured Sunday

Sunday 28th October saw four rugby matches between The British Schools and our old friends and rivals, Stella Maris, in the U14 and U15; and against the Old Christians Club in the U16 and U17 categories.

We are pleased to report that The British Schools won all four games. We would particularly like to congratulate the U17 team who are now the Uruguayan rugby champions. The U15 team won all the matches played in the final rounds of the tournament, although there is no official championship.

Almost 100 students participated on Sunday. No team goes through a season these days without injuries, so the contribution of all squad members is vital to a team’s success. Our teams are coached by former students of the School, many of whom are still playing, and we thank them too for their enthusiasm and dedication. 

The teamwork and effort shown throughout the year has yielded marvelous results!
