Gecko Athletics for 2017-2018

Welcome to Gecko Athletics

We are delighted to welcome you back to a new year of Gecko Athletics. We are already finished our second week of practices.

Thank you to those of you that were able to come to the meeting last week. In the meeting, we talked about our philosophy, the two organizations we belong to; South Asia International Schools Association (SAISA) and The International Schools of Sri Lanka (TISSL) and the commitments both students and parents need to make to be part of Gecko Athletics.
