To all the competitors, congratulations. Having been selected to represent your school at one of the region’s most prestigious inter-school sporting events, you will soon embark on a fantastic weekend of competition and camaraderie, the memories of which will stay with you for years to come.
Many thanks to the BSME for the tremendous focus it places on competitions like this one. The BSME works hard to “…foster teamwork and determination, celebrate diversity within the region, and provide every student the opportunity to be the best they can be.” These kind of goals resonate deeply with us and we are delighted to have been able to work alongside the BSME team to bring the 2018 U15 Games alive.
We are looking forward to welcoming everyone to Saadiyat Island and in particular, to Cranleigh Abu Dhabi. It is our first time hosting these Games and we are excited to be able to offer our own campus, as well as that of our close neighbour, NYU Abu Dhabi, for the event. Between us, we are able to provide the kind of world class facilities that should inspire excellence.
Sport is an integral part of a great education. It is no coincidence that there are so many sporting analogies used in the professional workplace; the games we learn as children help to prepare us for life as effective adults. Competitive sport, in particular, tests us in all kinds of ways, both physically and psychologically. Going into these Games, I hope your training schedule has helped you gain good levels of fitness and that your squad work has built a bond that will ensure effective and rewarding teamwork.
I would like to leave you with one message. Whether you emerge as winners or not, remember that your only limit is the one you set yourself. So aim high and be proud of how you conduct yourself both on and off the pitch.
Good luck everyone!
Michael Wilson Principal, Cranleigh Abu Dhabi
