Season Recap: Grade 5/6 Volleyball

The Grade 5/6 Volleyball team started the season with only two returning players after many of their past teammates moved up to the Grade 7/8 Volleyball team. This opened up opportunities for new grade 5 and even some eager grade 4 players to join the team and have their first experience with ISI Gryphon Athletics. 

“My goal for the team was for each player to improve by the end of the season,” Coach Linda Weiss said. “I believe we were successful. The grade 4 players had no experience, and their improvement was wonderful. As the season progressed, you could see the improvement from both our inexperienced players and the returning players.”

The team’s success also allowed them to qualify for the IISL tournament for the first time in several years, where the team won its first round. Players had an opportunity to see their growth in the tournament, having a second chance to play teams that they had encountered earlier in the season. 

Moving forward, the team will have many players returning next season, with players already setting goals on how to continue growing as teammates and athletes. 

“My biggest goal coming into the season was to learn how to do an underhand serve,” Grade 6 player Anastacia Davis said. “My biggest goal moving forward is to learn how to overhand serve.”

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.
