Season Recap: Girls Varsity Volleyball

Balancing a mixture of new and returning players, the Girls Varsity Volleyball Team started the season with goals to further develop returning players, teach the fundamentals to new players, and improve the team’s record from last year. 
“We wanted to teach the fundamentals of the game in practice so that it would transfer into real time game situations,” Assistant Coach Kevin Long said. “We also wanted to improve our overall team record from last to this year, which we achieved.”
Returning players had their personal improvement in mind, but also balanced their own growth with helping new players learn the game. 
“I believe my biggest accomplishment this season was being able to serve consistently and being able to go on a few serving runs,” Grade 10 player Asia Genawi said. “The biggest challenge was adapting to the new players that joined who we were not used to playing with.”
Looking forward to next year, the team looks forward to having many returning players, with the addition of many grade 8 players moving up to the High School team.
“We are already looking forward to getting started with next year's season,” Long said. “We have several veteran players returning as well as many new players that we feel are going to be a great asset to help our team be even better next year.”

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.
