Best-ever results for IIL at the 2015 Escalade Race14 December 2015
The 38th edition of the Escalade race on Saturday, 5th December was a record-breaking event for IIL. Firstly, IIL’s best ever result was obtained by Year 6 English primary student Vérane, who placed second in the « Girls B10 » classification.
Secondly, this year saw a record-number of IIL students taking part in the race : 323. In the overall school ranking, IIL placed fourth behind Notre Dame du Lac, Florimont and the International School of Geneva.
All IIL PE teachers were present to supervise the pupils, along with members of the Vie Scolaire and the school adminstration. A team of 20 IB students were also present to help out, this event being perfectly suited for IB students to gain some CAS (Creativity-Action-Service) hours which they are required to complete for the IB diploma.
A team of IIL teachers participated in the afternoon race. They ran impressively but unfortunately, could not be ranked as they lacked the correct number of participants, as stipulated by the rules of the competition.
Congratulations and well-done to all the runners and a huge thank you to all who helped out at the event.
