Multiple champions of the annual Council of British International Schools (COBIS) Games, St Saviour’s School, Lagos, will be heading to Kenya for this year’s tournament with the sole aim of reclaiming the title they last won in 2019.
For the first time, the 2024 COBIS Primary Games will be taking place in Africa and will be hosted by Braeburn Mombasa International School in Kenya from March 25 to 27, with schools across the globe expected to compete in athletics, swimming and football.
As five-time COBIS Primary School Games Champions and triple World School Games champions, St Saviour’s had claimed the overall titles at 2014 Abu Dhabi, 2015 Athens, 2016 Kazakhstan, 2017 UK and 2019 Bangkok.
For this year’s edition, the school team is set to reclaim the title with a formidable team just the head of sport, Sadiq Momodu said that the students are poised to make Nigeria proud in Kenya.
“We are going there as a formidable team and I know all eyes will be on us as champions in previous editions and the only schools to have won the tournament than any other team and we hope and believe we can do it again. The students have been training and they are eager to practicalise what they have been taught when they get to Kenya,” he said.
The Primary Games is an exciting opportunity for COBIS students to compete in a variety of sporting disciplines, meet their peers from around the world, and broaden their cultural experiences. Students will have the opportunity to compete in swimming, athletics and football in a bid to accrue the most points and take home the Championship trophy.
There are 12 school team places available at the Games and a school team consists of the participating students and accompanying school staff. Each team should be made up of 14 students (7 boys and 7 girls), plus two accompanying members of staff. Each student will be expected to take part in all three of the sports – football, athletics and swimming.
