** Unfortunately, in the early summer of 2009 there was an outbreak of H1N1 (swine flu) first in North America and later in many other areas. Due to safety considerations and acting in accordance with EDB guidelines, the school had to suspend all student activities and mass assemblies that summer. The donations raised from alumni, parents and teachers were used for future competitions.
