Students are encouraged to become involved in some form of sport or co-curricular activity. We offer more than 40 extra-curricular and co-curricular activities to enhance the curriculum and enrich the lives of students. These fulfilling, character building activities range from rugby, swimming and cricket to debating, chess, and stage band. Each activity will help students develop their natural talents. Boys enjoy sporting, cultural, intellectual, and artistic activities, and while we do celebrate the thrill of the win, we also promote the value of participation.
Through these programs our students learn about teamwork, mental fitness, fair play, and how to deal with loss as well as success. Our programs promote resilience, determination, and respect, which we recognise as being important for a boy's overall wellbeing.
Students have the opportunity to represent our school in a wide variety of sports and many of our former student athletes have competed successfully at national and international competitions and after graduating, have gone on to become professional sportsmen in their field.
Our staff work alongside sports specialists, elite coaches, psychologists, and doctors, to further develop skills, health and nutrition, motivation, sportsmanship, and commitment.
