Last weekend three students, Boaz, Ismar, Jendrik and ISH Teacher, Mr Veken, represented ISH and the Silverbacks and competed at the Triathlon Beach Challenge in Kijkduin. All participants completed the gruelling course successfully. The swim in the sea was choppy and the bike and run through the dunes and on the sand was tough, especially in the wind! A total of 191 competitors across two courses were involved. 


Boaz, Jendrik and Mr Veken completed the 1/4 course - 500m Swim, 14km Bike and 4.5km run - a total of 88 competitors


Mr Veken - 6th Place in 1hr 7mins

Boaz - 25th Place in 1hr 19mins

Jendrik - 30th Place in 1hr 22mins


Ismar completed the longer circuit - 1000m swim, 29km Bike and 9km run and came 3rd in his category age group and 46th out of 103 competitors in a time of 2hrs 35mins.


Huge congratulations to all competitors.


Go Silverbacks!!!

After dominating the Regional Flag Football Tournament, all three ISH Silverbacks Flag Football teams advanced to the National Flag Football Tournament, which was held in Utrecht this year on Saturday 16 June 2018.


All three teams played great, showed a lot of character and resilience ... and each player contributed. The U15 team battled greatly but regrettably came up just short this time around. A great foundation has been built for the future as all but one of the players were actually still eligible to play in the U13 competition.


The ISH2 U18 team kept on rolling and with some gritty performances managed to win their group. We were hoping for another all ISH final, but injuries started to mount up as the competition hardened and the team just missed out in both the semi-finals and the 3rd/4th place game. 4th place was a great result, but the team deserved a bit more.


The ISH1 U18 team was certainly challenged, but they played a disciplined game on both sides of the ball and won all of their group games, the semi-finals and the finals. All the players made key contributions and were crowned National Champions. First time ever for ISH in the U18 category!!!


Congratulations to all students involved and to Mr Verloop for his dedication and leadership. Mr Verloop is very proud of all the teams and players - great job!


Can the Silverbacks win back to back in 2019??


Go Silverbacks!!!

The Year 8 Healthy Snack/ Sandwich competition 2018 has taken place this morning in the MDA. What a great experience for our Year 8 students, who have worked hard in preparing healthy, tasty and responsible dishes! Our jury members had a difficult time choosing the best dish. We proudly announce that the winners of the competition are Sophia and Vaamika, from 8H, who made a delicious chicken salad with sweet potato and avocado saus: a healthy dish, with an international flair, made with fair trade/ biological products. Well done!

The Varsity Tennis Silverbacks Team travelled to Brussels and competed in the last ISST Tournament of the year to end Season 3. Going into the championships the team were very confident and looked forward to the challenge. It was a very tough tournament however, ISH had a record number of medal place matches that showed the Silverbacks were serious contenders. The girl's team continued to dominate, taking home the gold and bronze in the singles and the gold in the doubles, meaning the girls team came 1st overall (back to back years) The boy's team just missed out on individual medals but their excellent performance put them in 3rd place, making ISH History by reaching their highest position to date. These positions gave the Silverbacks a combined overall 2nd place, just missing out on the top spot, but again giving ISH their best ever tennis final position. An excellent overall performance lead by two fantastic captains, Daliyah Hammoud and Ron van der Horst. Congratulations to all students and coaches involved. Look out next year!! GO SILVERBACKS.
