This programme gives the children the opportunity to hone their sporting skills by competing with other schools. It is aimed at creating an atmosphere that will compel our children to discover their gifts and talents outside the four walls of the classroom. Soccer and Netball are the current two sporting codes which we do and will look to add more once we have perfected the roll out of these two traditional sports. We believe every child should be presented with the opportunity to develop their sporting kills namely soccer and netball outside of the educational programmes and classroom. Sport is also able to build leadership skills and responsibility in a child. Presenting motivational and sporting skills to the learners and also have the learners provide feedback to the coaches and teachers about what they have learnt from the coaching clinics and sporting days where they participate.

The 7 schools are placed into two streams whereby they compete in a league format to get the best four placed teams after the league which go and compete from the semi-final stages to the end. In a bid to ensure that we level the playing fields for all the schools, we ensure that they receive adequate training through coaching clinics provided by external professionals. The coaching clinics are there to allow them all the preparation they require to improve their skills and be ready for the league run of the competition. Our vision for the sport programmes to compete nationally and internationally with other young athletes. We want to take the sport teams to Brazil on tour and therefore up to us to ensure that we build up a strong young team. We will be also hosting Sport clinics in the course of the year with the aim to get professional training for skills development.
