Jay Gibson was born in July 2008 in Nanning Guangxi. When he was 3 years old, he began to swim, play football and tennis, which has been his primary sport ever since.  The CBIS student has now participated in varieties of semi-formal and formal U10 (10-year-old children) and U12 (12-year-old children) youth tennis tournaments around China.

In August 2017, he finished second in the Guangzhou Olympic stadium U10 sports games, third in U10 Anning Yunnan Zheng Jie Cup tournament and ended up the year playing in the Shenzhen Zheng Jie National Cup finals as one of the top 16 players in the nationwide tennis tournament.

In between November 2017 and February 2018, he participated in 3 Chinese Tennis Association U12 tournaments in Changsha, Hunan where he finished 3rd each time and in the U10 Zhuzhou Hunan provincial tennis tournament where he ended up as the champion.

In May 2018, he played in the U10 final of the Zheng Jie Cup tournament in Chengdu, Sichuan where he finished as the first runner-up, and then he was invited to play in the U12 Hunan provincial end of the season finals in which he finished fourth in August the same year.

From August to October 2018, he participated in the U12 sports games at the Guangzhou Olympic stadium where he ended up as the finalist in summer and finished second runner-up in autumn, and he also played in Tianhe Guangzhou’s U10 tournament where he was the first runner-up.

In October 2018, he ranked for the second straight year as the top 16 U10 tennis player in the nationwide Zheng Jie Cup which qualified him to play in Shenzhen finals again where he finished his last U10 season as 8th in China overall.   

Currently, while studying at the CBIS School Jay is working hard for his 2019 season in which he will have to compete in the age group of 12-year-old children (U12).  He is planning to participate in Zheng Jie and Nadal Cups that both are organized nationwide, and he is signed into the Chinese Tennis Association to participate in varieties of tennis tournaments around China too. Jay is hopeful to sign into the International Tennis Association in 3 years’ time and perhaps become more serious with tennis later on.

CBIS has just had its 3rd successful International Day. Each class from kindergarten to secondary represented a different nation. This year was our biggest year yet, totaling 19 different nations from across the globe.

After our opening ceremony and extravagant parade, we had a concert with 10 musical performances. Performances included a Portuguese Drama, American, Egyptian, Peruvian, Russian, and Mongolian dances. Along with these performances, parents and teachers of CBIS also showcased their talents.

After the performances, our students sold food from their nations in an international marketplace. Along with CBIS stalls, representatives from the local community also appeared to advertise their businesses. Proceeds from sales will be donated to charity.

We would like to thank students, parents, teachers, local businesses, along with everyone else who has contributed to making this year the best yet. We are happy to contribute to the growth of our global society.
