In October, our Primary students were busy making their mark on the Traill Hall of Fame. Our Years 6 to 8 students were hugely successful in the
FOBISIA Primary Maths Challenge and Kid’s Literature Competition.
In November, teams of secondary science students from Years 9 and 10 competed in the KLESF (Kuala Lumpur Engineering Science Fair) 2018 Competition in Malaysia. Out of 455 entries from students from 10 countries, our Year 9 team finished an impressive 4th place in the Biological Science Category. This will qualify them to present their work at the upcoming International STEM Challenge in April 2019 being held in Singapore.
Our dance groups, musicians and drama students throughout the school have all been busy taking part in inter-school competitions and performances.
Our sports teams have been adding to our trophy display throughout the first term. Our dedicated coaches continue to challenge our players to be the best they can and it certainly pays off in competitions.
Traill hosted the annual Dragons Cup Basketball Tournament in November, with teams from Japan, Thailand and the Philippines. In what were thrilling competitions, our Under 14 and Under 16 boys had to battle to prove themselves champions.
We are lucky at Traill that we have such a wonderfully happy and supportive atmosphere within the school, where our students are taught never to be afraid to try something. This makes for such an exciting and diverse range of interests and talents.
We are all looking forward to the start of Term 2, but in meantime, we would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous Christmas and New Year.
