The adventure starts here! (Upstream Sports motto: A community established to develop sports activities in Lebanon)Blind-with-vision                            

On December 6, 2017, the students, teachers, and staff of the Secondary Division were honored to receive Ms. Mary Kleyany, a professional athlete, a co-founder of Upstream Sports community, and an experienced marathon runner who has previously competed in the Prague and Cyprus Marathons. One of her so many accomplishments has been to help Mr. Rabih Al Jammal, a visually impaired man with a great heart, to realize his lifelong dream. Together, they were able to cross the finishing line and achieve the title of the first fully blind Lebanese person to complete the 42-kilometer course of Beirut Marathon. An inspiration to us all!!

Also, during the morning assembly, Ms. Alic Mardikian and Mr. John Moustafa, Physical Education teachers, distributed the medals to the Secondary students who won the Sprint and Cross-Country Competitions. Congrats!!
