After several weeks of committed break time and after school training sessions, on Monday the 7th of March, the King Fahad Academy welcomed three teams from Halcyon School to compete in a series of basketball matches across the age ranges for both boys and girls. 

The KFA welcomed our guests finely turned out in the green and white basketball kits, presenting a uniform and organised front prior to the tip offs.

Three gyms, three games and three well fought contests which saw the KFA win the boys Year 8 to 10 and the girls Year 7 and 8 matches with a narrow loss in the girls Years 9 to 12; a 2-1 overall victory for the KFA!

The event has been a welcome return to competitive sporting events after a two year Covid enforced interruption to hosting and visiting other schools. There is a real healthy ‘buzz’ around the school with pupils excited to be representing the school and pitting their skills against an unknown opponent.

Well done to all participants and thank you to Ms McKenna, Mr Walid and Mr Kieran for their coaching and organisation of the and thank you to all of the site staff and colleagues who dropped in to support, cheer and congratulate.
