Gearing Up For Special Olympics 2013

Eden School is participating in Special Olympics 2013 and 12 students are representing the School in 3 events this year: Athletics, Bocce & Swimming.

PE Teachers Farhan and Hanif have been putting our students through tough training since the beginning of 2013, preparing the Eden contingent for the highly competitive games ahead. Joel, Aqil, Amirul, Gareth & Maverick have been training every week, running at Millennia Institute and Bukit Gombak Stadium, familiarizing themselves with the distances and markings on the track.

Aqram, Wee Kit and Maheswaran train twice a week for Bocce in the school’s putting green, aiming to keep the gold title won by Wee Kit last year.

Ming Cheng, JIan Hong, Joshua and Justin train very hard, twice a week at Clementi Swimming Pool, hope to surprise everyone in this year’s Aquatics competition.

The Special Olympics spirit is in the air. The games have started with the Athletics Divisioning on 4 May and the Opening Ceremony Rehearsal on 15 May.

Come and cheer for our athletes! The dates are:
