Markham in the News
1. Disney Cup International Youth Football Tournament
The Mayores football team participated in the Disney Cup, an event that has attracted teams from all over the world for the past 13 years, between July 10th – July 15th at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida.
Twelve teams competed in the Under 18 age category with our Mayores team finishing in a well deserved 3rd place.
Having to play 4 games in 5 days and in temperatures close to 40c did not prevent the pupils from displaying high quality football at an international level. All games were very intense and it was great to see how much fun our pupils had during this fantastic football event.
Apart from playing in the tournament, the Mayores team also had time to do some shopping, watch other sporting events at the ESPN sports complex and visit all of the Walt Disney World theme parks.
Many thanks to the parents and school staff who helped put this once in a lifetime opportunity together.
2. IB Art Department News
Every year, after each IB Art examination session, IB senior examiners select the best pupil work to be included in their virtual gallery, hosted on the visual arts pages of the online curriculum centre
The virtual gallery is a resource that teachers, candidates and examiners from around the world refer to regularly for examples of top class IB Diploma Programme visual arts work.
We are delighted that work from Joaquín García Calderón Mendoza del Solar (0633-016) was chosen to be included in the Painting category following the November 2010 examination session. The Subject Area Manager for Visual Arts, Ms Gill Chudley would like to pass on her congratulations to the Markham College Art department and particularly to Joaquín for their excellent work.
