The Lincoln School Boy Scouts have successfully concluded their student organized chess tournament with Artem T crowned champion and Carlos K finishing in a strong 2nd. Congratulations to all the participants!
The martian’s landed at Lincoln’s Globe Theater on Wednesday night for a wonderful evening of music and performance, where each Elementary School student had a part to play and a song to sing. By the end of the event all was well; the theater had been turned into a space of Christmas cheer, love and laughter, as we sang, This is the time of year for love and peace. Congratulations to all who made this happen!
The Girls’ basketball team played their first game of the season, and were victorious, defeating Rato Bangala 34-31.
Young guard, Ihra H. got the team started with her aggressive drives and baskets. Teammate, Akshara S. gobbled up minutes with her consistent defense and her offensive scoring. And, in the second half, it was the splash-sisters; Sarya T.M. and Ayushma T. who had the crowd taking out umbrellas as they made it rain from long range.

All of the Snow Leopards saw action on the court, and look to continue their momentum going forward.
Last Friday, the High School Student Council hosted an “Outdoor Movie Night.” Students gathered together under the Himalayan stars in their sleeping-bags, sharing pizza, laughter, and a movie as they built Snow Leopard bonds.
On Saturday, December 1st, the Upper Elementary Singers, High School Choir, and High School Band shared their holiday music at LABIM Mall in a spirited gathering. Every level was filled with onlookers and students performed wonderfully! Thank you to everyone who came to play, sing, watch, and show their support!
Movember at Lincoln School culminated in a ‘Save or Shave’ fundraising event that encouraged participants to either save, shave, or style their facial hair through an open bidding process. The lunch-time event, which also featured ‘noggin ball’ and bake sale items, was a resounding success which raised almost 38,000 NPR. The proceeds from this event will be combined with the money raised on ‘Wear It Pink Day’ and will be donated to a local health organization. Thank you to everyone who participated in our Movember activities!
COLOMBO, Sri-Lanka. — The Lincoln School Girls’ Volleyball team 2018 conquered obstacles and rose to the SAISA challenge despite losing key players from our team last year. The blend of youth and experience, as well as a strong work ethic, steered the team to numerous victories throughout the tournament. We definitely had our ups and downs throughout the process, but as a team we grew stronger and stronger and never let our fighting spirit fade.
We knew participating in a round-robin, nine-team volleyball tournament was going to be very challenging and exhausting, as we played four matches each day. However, that didn’t break our focus, nor our hunger to succeed. Fighting against the heat and humidity in Colombo, we played all our games to the best of our abilities, or in other words till the ball had dropped.
In the end, we finished fifth in the tournament and with big smiles on our faces in the knowledge that we are ready for the years to come. As a team, we have earned many good experiences for the future and countless incredible memories. After back to back SAISA championships and an amazing run of five consecutive finals appearances, Lincoln girls’ volleyball is ready to rise again!

AMMAN, Jordan. — Winter may have begun in Jordan, but the Snow Leopards were smoking hot at the 2018 SAISA Swim Meet at the American Community School in Amman last week, breaking records and bringing home golds galore in three action-packed days.
Lincoln School finished the meet as champions in the 13-14 boys and 15-19 girls categories, placing 3rd in the boys and girls overall, but the story doesn’t end there. Our small school in the Himalayas ran away with the leaderboard, shattering 16 of the 25 SAISA records broken at the meet, and taking home 34 of the total 86 gold medals! Isabella M and Nasir H notched 6 SAISA records each, with Isabella becoming the first girl in SAISA history to clock a sub-28 second 50-freestyle and Nasir cleaning up with 10 of 10 gold medals. Tisa S ran away the 15-19 girls breaststroke, IM and freestyle races, coming home with 3 individual SAISA records, and smashing the four-year old 15-19 girls 400 free relay, along with her teammates Oshina B, Akshara S, and Ayushma T. Newcomer Aaditya S came home with 9 golds, 1 silver and 3 new school records in the 13-14 boys category, while young veteran Ashwini S recorded several best times, multiple golds, and medaled in all her events for the 10-12 girls. Each of our age groups had strong point scorers, and the team was led admirably by seniors Dane, Jarrah, and Oshina.
We had tons of record-breaking swims, but those were far from the only highlights of the meet. Every single swimmer recorded at least one personal best during the meet, and several of our newer team members swam up in a big way for the team. Lincoln School may be small, but all of Jordan heard us roar this week.
