Sporting opportunities at school in South Africa

School Sports

Our Sport

MOVEMENT IS THE BASIS OF ALL LEARNING

Applewood offers a diverse range of sporting opportunities for our children designed to ensure maximum physical development and maximum participation. Through this we aim to grow our children’s physical abilities, while also developing self-confidence, grit, perseverance and decision making. Children and their coaches are encouraged to be actively and enthusiastically involved, from the daily practices to the regular fixtures that are arranged. Emphasis is placed on sportsmanship, enjoyment and the development of skills and techniques.

While we understand the culture of team sport in South Africa and offer the children the opportunity to learn and play the traditional games, we are also aware of our responsibility to develop a love of physical exercise for life. Physical Education lessons provide the foundation for success in sport. Being in the Elgin Valley – the hub of mountain biking and other outdoor pursuits in the Western Cape – our children are exposed to mountain biking, trail running and swimming as part of their curriculum.
