Change isn't anything new to those of us used to an international school community like ours -- its highs and lows are familiar. While we miss our paddling friends and what they brought to the team, we gain new perspectives and fresh energy from the chemistry we have with new teammates. The make-up of the team this year gives us our highest male-to-female ratio too, something we have struggled with in years past, especially when compared with non-school based dragonboat teams... ;) With JC and Hilda joining this year, we are also diversifying our team further to include non-teaching staff members -- contrary to popular opinion, we're not all teachers! We hope in upcoming seasons to reach out further to include more members of our community on our team.
For now, we're one race into the season, with two more to go. Stay tuned for more updates! :)
