At the end of each year, I find myself both filled with pride and yet shaking my head in disbelief at our accomplishments. This small international school in the Kathmandu Valley continues to go to toe to toe with the best that our SAISA league, complete with schools 3 to 4 times our size, has to offer. How do we do it? Year after year, how do we find the Snow Leopard spirit to dig deep, and be examples to the rest of our sister schools about what it looks like to give your all, and win or lose with sportsmanship and dignity.
