Girls Prep  February 13, 2018 | Physical education | Sport | Jean Macleod

The new multi-purpose surface, on Brecknock Field, was put to good use from the start of 2018. How wonderful to have the extra tennis courts on which to play. Tennis match afternoons are now far more time efficient as more matches can be played, in a shorter time.

THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE SPORTS DEPARTMENT

Girls Prep  February 08, 2016 | Physical education | Sport | Liz Ashmore (Director of Sport)

We have a mantra in the Sports Department which we often ask the girls to repeat: ‘Do YOUR best!’ This motto speaks to our philosophy of ensuring that every girl becomes the very best version of herself possible.

From Grade 0 to Grade 7, our focus in every sport is very much ‘skills based’, as we are acutely aware that we are not only preparing girls for the more rigorous sporting demands in high school. We are also trying to engender a love and a passion for sport to guarantee that all the girls continue participating for as long as they are able, well into adulthood.

Grade 5 netball vs Sefikeng School

Girls Prep  June 15, 2015 | Sport

Two Grade 5 teams played netball against Sefikeng School recently. The girls arrived and, realising that the Sefikeng girls were sweeping their court for the upcoming game, took over from them to give them an opportunity to get ready for the match. The girls then noticed that many of their opponents were playing in socks or were barefoot. They approached Mrs Eggett at half-time and asked if they could remove their shoes too. This was a genuine act of ubuntu, which was positive and uplifting for all.

Sportsmanship’s 10 Commandments

College  June 09, 2015 | Sport | Rui Morais – Deputy Headmaster: Co-Curricular

The sports field is an extension of the classroom in that, as educators, our job is not to produce Springbok rugby players, but to prepare our pupils for the challenges that lie ahead in a rapidly changing global environment. The sports field is merely one facet of that education process.
