School Sports in South Africa
Applewood offers a diverse range of sporting opportunities for our children designed to ensure maximum participation. Through this we aim to grow our children’s physical abilities, while also developing self-confidence. Children and their coaches are encouraged to be actively and enthusiastically involved, from the daily practice 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. We offer individual activities as well. 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, open water swimming and canoeing as part of their curriculum.
If physical activity and a love of sport for life is important to you – come and have a look at our school.
