Season Recap: Girls Varsity & JV Volleyball

The Girls Varsity and JV Volleyball teams had a season filled with tough opponents but used the competition as an opportunity to improve as players and teammates. With many players already having volleyball experience, students were able to continue to improve on the fundamentals and communication on the court. 

“Our goals for this season were to focus on the little things that we can control,” coach Danielle Long said. “We aimed to stay disciplined, communicate, move our feet, and focus on executing the things we worked on in practice in games.”

The team’s upperclassmen stepped up both in practice and in games to show leadership throughout the season - helping other players learn new skills and showing good sportsmanship. Every player was able to form strong bonds with one another and made connections with other players they may not have made if it weren’t for the commonality they shared of playing volleyball.  

“My biggest accomplishment this season was building strong relationships with new players and old players,” Grade 11 player Isabel Kim said. “Not only did this impact me during volleyball, but outside of sports too. We all had a common interest and connected through volleyball. I’m so glad that I was able to be there for them, and my teammates were able to be there for me.”

The Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of study designed for students in their final two years of high school. It is a broad-based, two-year course that aims to prepare students for university by encouraging students to be knowledgeable and inquiring but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.

The Extended Essay is an opportunity for students to gain experience with the independent research and writing skills expected at university. Students investigate a topic they personally care about from class and create a 4,000-word piece of independent research over the course of a year.
