    Ross Turnbull Visit

    On Monday 5th of March we welcomed Ross Turnbull to Amity International School.


    Ross began his professional football career graduating through the ranks of the Middleborough youth system which was one of the best at the time in England. After gaining experience in the second tier of English football at the end of the 2008-9 season Ross was signed by Carlo Anchellotti to join Chelsea Football Club.


    He stayed there for 4 memorable seasons. With Carlo Ross won the premier league, FA cup and community shield. Under Roberto Di Matteo they added another FA cup triumph and the UEFA Champions League. Finally during his last season there and working for Rafeal Benetiz Ross won the Europa League.


    Altogether Ross made 147 league appearances, 8 in the FA cup, 12 in the league cup and 3 in the champions league.


    Ross was expertly interviewed by two of our year 6 sports ambassadors, Alexia Brits and Maria Pousinho. They asked him questions relating to his career and experiences as a professional athlete.


    After the interview Ross was on hand to give out our awards for the term 2 sports teams.

    This month saw our sports teams take to the pool and field for their first competitive fixtures. The enthusiasm and effort by the pupils has been brilliant and we are excited about the competitions and events to come.

    The girls football teams are thriving. With over 50 girls competing to play in our three teams lead by Coach Kerry, Tammy and Mohammed. A positive start to the season saw three U9 wins against Al Raha school and a narrow U11 defeat against West Yas. Amity took their very first swimming team to a gala at Al Raha school. With only trial session in the small pool the odds were against the swimmers. However they performed extremely well did themselves and the school proud earning 147 points and finishing 4th. We will be holding a another trial session on the 24th of October for all swimmers old and new who would like to compete in the next gala on the 5th of November.

    Over 50 students each week are playing touch rugby from year 3-6 at school. Our U11 team have already played their first two matches in the off island league. The U9s have their first games on Wednesday the 18th of October. Sports at Amity is growing substantially. Since the start of term we have introduced afterschool Athletics, Badminton, Sailing, Boys Football and the Super 11 programme.

    Additionally, Amity offers a whole host of external provider paid activities offering students the opportunity to take part in range of sports and physical activities. If you are a parent and would like to assist the PE department we would love your help. Please contact the PE team. You will be required to comply with Amity policy which includes providing a good conduct certificate.
