Athletics
In addition to regularly scheduled PE classes, elementary students have many opportunities to take part in intramural athletic events.

The MSBees

As a member of JISAC (Junior International Schools Athletic Conference) our school participates in a variety of sports such as football, handball, volleyball, basketball and athletics across the schoolyear.

We encourage all children to participate regardless of skill and ability, with a focus on team and participation over prizes and winning.

MSBees field teams in two JISAC divisions, U9 and U11 and students in Grades 1-6 may trial to be part of our teams. The sports schedule rotates according to the overall JISAC event  published for each school year.

In addition to the school's regular JISAC involvement, MSB also has its own swim team, the MSB Aquabees.


MSB Aquabees

The Aquabees is a comptetive team swim team in its third year representing MSB in local and international swim meets. The Aquabees consists of two squads: the Competition Team and the Development Team. Children on the Competition Team have the chance to represent MSB against other schools in competitons in Beijing and abroad. Children on the Development Team team train alongside our Competition Team swimmers to improve their abilities.

All swimmers have opportunities throughout the year to represent MSB at local meets, depending on their swimming abilities. Coaches consider the overall performance, attitude and potential of the swimmers in addition to swim times, and select suitable swimmers for both teams.

During the 2014 Baby and Little Dragon Invitational at the International School of Beijing, the team emerged second in overall team scores and first in overall girl’s scores. They also performed extremely well during the April 2015 Hong Kong Mantas meet, finishing in the top 3 in most heats.

Running Club

Once a week, children have the opportunity to join MSB teachers Elaine Kinlough and Hanneke de Groot on a mid-day run around the neighborhood. This activity is offered once a week, with the option of an early morning run every Friday, depending on air quality and weather.
