Morrison Invitational Swim Meet – Day 1
Last Friday our Sharks Swim team, “The Only Sharks that Swim”, visited Taichung for the annual TISSA Invitational Meet at MAC. Before the competition, our teams had the opportunity to participate in a service project, the Hero Games, in which our athletes along with swimmers from other schools worked together to provide a fun morning of water activities and games to children with special needs. It was great to see our students, with love and service in their hearts, work to MAKe a Difference in people’s lives!
