Abbey participated in a biathlon last week during P.E. The ASD P.E. Department held one last year, and it was such a hit with parents and students, they decided to make it an annual event. This is supposed to help the students get prepared and motivated to participate in the triathlon that they hold in the spring for parents and students. I don't know if Abbey came away ready to take on that kind of challenge, but she really pushed herself, buddied up with her friend who was feeling reluctant, and came away proud of her finish time.
I am just amazed at the wonderful programs The American School of Doha provides for our students. They really build strength, confidence, talent, and determination, and I'm not just talking about the P.E. department. Thanks, ASD for pushing our children and providing such a positive "American" atmosphere for so many blessed students to learn!
