For those who have been keeping track, many flyers and posters were sent out to bring light to this occasion. The event ran by students and parents pairing up to play other teams, and the ones with most wins, make it to next round. 

The games were consistent across the 3-day course; All the teams were competitive yet maintaining a friendly spirit.

A round of applause to Sai and his mother who paired up and make it all the way to the finals. The Finals between Ria and Sai were an interesting game to watch.  Congratulations to Ria and Manju Kumar who were the 2022 champions

 

We also had special guests Mr Page, Ms Mackin and Ms Dezylva, who came and cheered for the teams. Overall, the PFA were able to raise $130, thanks to everyone that participated! 

 

Huge thanks to Ms Vanstan and Mr Armistead who were pretty much the backbone to support the event. I also would like to shout to the School Students who helped us with the tournament Srinidhi, Gurneet, Mehar and Sanjana. We Appreciate all your support. Last but not the least, a huge shout to out to the Volunteers from PFA Shanny, Trudi, Larry, Jaya, Shahila and Jodie for all the help extended to run the tournament smoothly. 

 

The tournament worked out to be a huge success with over 40 teams registering and 31 teams playing! For all those who registered and couldn’t play we hope to see you next year!

 

Bollywood Dance Completion happened to be on the 27 August, so many teams had to drop out. Congrats to all those teams who participated in the dance, and we heard a few of those teams won a few awards! Next time we will be mindful when planning.😊

 

As I had mentioned this is first of an effort from the PFA and please do excuse for any glitches that you spotted! With experience and feedback, we hope to put even a better and bigger show next time! I hear all the mothers asking about Mother’s Day... stay tuned!
