Last summer Mr. Kirkland helped ISH students and Varsity Footballers Kevin Capelao, Lucas van Eynde and Iray Hamuli in trying to secure a position in an American College to play soccer. Between their parents and Mr. Kirkland's knowledge of the area, the boys attended two ID Soccer camps in California. Over a two week period the boys were assessed in the playing abilities. They were also guests of Mr. Kirkland's last Soccer Club, Carlsbad United and played in a match against a team from the Isle of Man, in which the boys all played a part in winning the game for the club. As of now these students are preparing for SAT's and further academic examinations, which are vital for their success.
