Our varsity softball girls played phenomenally in their invitational hosted by Brent this past weekend, where they faced fellow APAC competitors: Hong Kong International School (HKIS), Shanghai American School Pudong (SASPD), and Western Academy of Beijing (WAB). The girls were incredibly successful in the round robin beating HKIS (17-1), SASPD (17-1), and WAB (26-4). The girls continued on to play a nail-biting championship game against HKIS, where they faced a 1-4 deficit for most of the game. However, both the team and the crowd’s high morale inspired the girls to have a sensational 17-run comeback in the fifth inning. The team went on to win the championships, 24-4. Kudos to all their hard work and effort under the sun, and hopefully this is just the beginning to a fruitful season.

Congratulations to Casey Stevenson for receiving the 2017 SENIA Student Advocacy Award. Nominations are accepted from international schools across Asia and one winner is selected by an anonymous awards committee of SENIA teacher reps. In addition to this honor, SENIA paid for Casey’s trip to Japan to receive her award and give a speech to the entire delegation. Casey spoke of her challenge of coping with depression and how teachers at Brent helped get her on the path to recovery. She also talked about the various ways she advocates for students with special needs – one of which is through her artwork. She did a fantastic job! Way to go, Casey!
