Mar Qardarkh Eagles Logo

Our new team logo designed by our MYP4 student, Meron.

For the first time in Mar Qardakh history, we have sports!

Mar Qardakh now has both men’s and women’s football, basketball, and volleyball teams for MYP1 through Highschool. Football will be coached by Mr. Sanar and Ms.Lizzie; basketball by Mr. Alex and Ms. Anna; and volleyball by Mr. Elie and Ms. Maryana. Practices will occur on five days of the week, with each team meeting at least three times a week. More than 100 MQIS students are participating; they are incredibly excited to be a part of this milestone in Mar Qardakh history.

This project was spearheaded by our MYP Individuals & Societies teacher, Mr. Alex, who firmly believes that “..sports at Mar Qardakh will help our students exercise their bodies and promote discipline both on the field and in the classroom.” 

MQIS is hoping to demonstrate that discipline against our first competitor this November – stay tuned for more details. Until then – Go Eagles!
