Every year a bunch of International Schools in South Sast Asia participate in the tournament seasac (South East Asia Student Activities Conference). This year the Australian International School in Singapore hosted seasac basketball 2018. I have never been to Singapore before and it was a lot of fun.
Thursday morning we left the school and drove a bus to Singapore. The bus ride was around five hours long, we had one lunch stop on the way. I slept, chatted with friends and listened to music most of the way. When we arrived at our hotel (Orchard Parade Hotel) we checked in and then went out to eat dinner and buy snacks. We were four girls who decided to do face masks and watch the new episode of Riverdale.
Day two started out very early, we ate breakfast at 6:30 am. Afterwards we left the hotel to go to the school (AIS). At AIS we started out by having a opening ceremony. After the ceremony we went by bus to Stamford American International School (SAIS) where we had our first game against Garden International School. We have already played Garden a couple of times before. We started the tournament out with a win! At 2:00 pm we had our second game against SAIS. We lost the game by one basket: 30/28. At 5:00 pm we had our last game of the day, it was played against AIS. We lost this game by a lot.. After the big loss we went back to the hotel where we relaxed and went out to eat at this very good pizza place.
On our second game day we started out by playing against Harrow International School, where we sadly lost. It was a crazy game, very emotional. One good thing about this game was that I scored a basket. Then later we played our last game that day, it was played against British School Jakarta. We won 28/21, I made another basket. We had five girls fouling out including myself, I fouled out when there was around 20 seconds left. A little after 6:00 pm we had a banquet. Everyone was dressed nice and we ate good food. The "all star players" where revealed and the sportsmanship award as well.
We started out with an early game, we played for fifth and sixth place. We played against Stamford again. We won this time 36/28 and therefore ended on fifth place. After our game we watched the finals. When all the games were done we had the award ceremony. It was an amazing weekend, you get to play what you love and make new friendships. After the ceremony we took the five hour long bus ride home.
