U16 SAIKAC Football

DBGS had an excellent first day winning three out of their four games and ended up seeded 3rd for the second day of matches. The team spirit throughout was impressive and with a little bit more luck at times they could have finished higher. Congratulations to all the girls who took part for being an excellent on and off the field.

After two days of gruelling competition, the boys managed to finish in a creditable 4th place.

Day one in the round robin section of the tournament saw the team winning one and drawing two of their games, this meant we were to be seeded 4 in the main draw.
Day two began with a comfortable win over Dammam, then after losing to DHS we beat Jubail to earn a quarter final place against Dhahran Aramco.  After a close fought game it was all square at full time, in the ensuing penalty shoot we were unfortunately eliminated from the competition.
All the boys performed valiantly, particularly on day two when they had to play 4 matches back-to-back.  Particular mention goes to Callum Venables who had a stirring two days, performing heroics in the centre of the defence.

Build a city Project Year 8

After building some truly creative urban spaces and learning about innovative solutions to modern urban problems, all in Year 8 would agree with Nicholas Coleman (8HP) learned that there was so much more to a cities than just putting some buildings together. The students brainstormed in different ways to use space in a cities even as they learned about urban problems and researched environmentally friendly solutions from around the world. Like waste management in Sweden, rainwater harvesting, smart transportation solutions and vertical farming to include more green spaces in urban areas. There were plenty of challenges from working together in a team, to managing time in order to meet the deadline, to coming up with solutions that were appropriate for your cities. As Veronica (8BH) put ‘lots of patience, teamwork and planning’ but the results have been brilliant and exceeded expectation. Maria Diamond expressed the aim of the project perfectly on how to work with others in order to find real life solutions.
