We pride ourselves on the ability to offer unique experiences for students to represent their school and participate in both competitive and non-competitive events with other BSME students across the Middle East. Our aim is to foster teamwork and determination, celebrate diversity within the region and provide every student the opportunity to be the best they can be. Our Students programme is largely hosted by our wonderful member schools who strive to provide the best experience for our students. Our Student events, including the BSME Games, are offered exclusively to BSME member schools.
After several discussions with the HoPE Committee and the Executive Committee, the unfortunate but necessary decision has been made to cancel all BSME Games that were due to take place this academic year 2020-2021. They were scheduled as follows:
- U11 Small Games - 11 - 13 March | Horizon English School
- U11 Large Games - 04 - 06 March | Cranleigh Abu Dhabi
- U13 Games - 21 - 23 January | Dubai
- U15 Games - 11 - 13 March | Al Yasmina Academy, Abu Dhabi
- U19 Games - 05 - 06 February | The British School Al Khubairat
The Executive Committee has taken into consideration the amount of time and effort host schools need to organise these events, training and selection of teams, potential travel restrictions, ensuring social distancing measures, regulatory approvals, parental concerns and several other factors. The safety of our students, staff and parents is our main priority.
We are in consultation with our host schools for the standalone events for the remainder of the academic year. We are closely monitoring developments across the region and will inform you of a decision as soon as we are in a position to do so.
Should anyone have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
