The Youth Olympic Games

The Youth Olympic Games (YOG) are a quadrennial multi-sport event organised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the participating athletes from around the world are aged between 14 and 18 years old.

China is ready to accommodate over 3,500 athletes competing in 30 different disciplines. The event will take place in Nanjing (one of the earliest established cities in what is now China) and will start on Saturday, 16th August with the Opening Ceremony, and finish with the Closing Ceremony taking place on Thursday, 28th.

Athletics, basketball, equestrian jumping, field hockey, swimming, table tennis, sailing and beach volleyball female and male are the disciplines in which Uruguay is represented in Nanjing 2014.

We wish our students María Cecilia Casarotti, Milagros Algorta and Paula Costa (participating in field hockey) the greatest success in this exciting event. Participation in this prestigious competition will be an historic moment for The British Schools and an unforgettable experience for the students taking part.

Sporting Exchanges

For more than 30 years, The British Schools and the St. Andrew’s Scots School in Buenos Aires have been sharing sporting exchanges.  These exchanges include Rugby, Hockey and Basketball matches for Senior students and Rugby and Hockey matches for Junior students in Form 6.

These activities not only provide an opportunity for students to strengthen existing bonds of friendship and build new ones, they also promote teamwork, values and fair play, and enhance personal growth as well as physical development.

Japan Rugby Tour 2014

  • Published in Junior

The British Schools players gave a splendid display of their rugby skills, teamwork, determination and true School Spirit during the recent Japan Rugby Tour.  They finished top of their group and qualified for the quarter finals.  Then, in a nail biting match against tough competition from an impressive French team, The British Schools were denied their worthy place in the semi-finals by just two points in a match that ended 22-20.  

Overall, The British Schools team achieved a very commendable 6th place out of 16. 

Most admirable of all was the players’ good conduct throughout the Tour and their great sense of fair play and camaraderie in all matches.
