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.
