Sports

The school offers a wide range of extra-curricular activities for pupils from Grade 2 to Grade 7. It is the philosophy that these activities be offered to the majority and so mass participation is encouraged. At the same time we give those pupils with specific abilities the opportunity to extend themselves at a higher Zonal, Inter Zonal or Provincial level. Those who do achieve this are awarded School Colours or School Honours awards.

The following activities are offered:

For Boys

  •  Swimming
  •  Cricket
  •  Hockey
  •  Cross Country Running
  •  Athletics
  • Indoor Hockey
  • Soccer
  • Mini-Cricket
  • Ball skills

 For Girls 

  • Swimming
  •  Netball
  •  Hockey
  •  Cross Country Running
  •  Athletics
  •  Softball
  • Indoor Hockey
  • Soccer
  • Mini-Cricket
  • Ball skills

An Annual Inter House Swimming Gala and Sports Day is organized separately for the Foundation Phase and the Senior Primary Phase.

From time to time various outside organisations offer private coaching in a variety of activities for all ages, including, Soccer, Ballet, Modern Dance, Cricket, Baseball, Water Polo, Advanced Swimming lessons and Drummies. This information is made available to parents via their children.

Every pupil from Grade 2 to Grade 7 is encouraged to participate in at least one organised activity per term. An Extra Curricular programme is sent home during the first week of each new term. The programme offered for that term is explained and pupils then ‘enroll’. Once they have indicated their desire to participate we insist that they persevere and so learn commitment. If unable to attend an organised practice an excuse note addressed to the teacher in charge of that activity is required. The Extra Curricular programme is not offered in the first or last week of school term.
