Every Sunday, I play ultimate frisbee with a group of teachers and students. It’s become a part of my week that I really look forward to! I love the range of ages and the way that everyone can play together. One of the best things about teaching in an international school is the special and unique community that is fostered between all involved.
Our school recently hosted an ultimate frisbee tournament for schools in the surrounding areas. Though the sport hasn’t yet taken Indonesia by storm, there were ten teams that competed. SPH played some excellent frisbee, placing 2nd and 3rd, but more than that it was fun to see the way that they stepped up in sportsmanship and leadership. Watching them help kids who were hurt, pull in kids who were left out, and pray for both teams at the end of the games made my day!
In the middle of the tournament, we took a break to grill out, eat together, and enjoy the pool. As must happen when in the pool and in the competitive spirit, chicken fights broke out! Most impressive were the inter-school battle (won by SPH) and the triple decker chicken fight.
