At Pelham we regard the Sports Programme as a very important and integral part of the holistic education of our learners.
All our learners are thus encouraged to participate in one or more of the activities on offer each term. We encourage them to play a ‘team’ sport per term, because teamwork is so important in life, and if they prefer to play an individual sport as well, they may do so. Our Sports Programme is a vast one and caters for the individual needs of the pupils, with eleven different sporting codes on offer. The school undertakes to have a coach available for each team and, wherever possible, to arrange fixtures for these teams. During a good week there will be as many as fifty Interschool fixtures involving up to six hundred of our learners. You will go a long way to find a programme that is more extensive than this.
Pelham is extremely proud of its sporting achievements over the years. We have proved to be very competitive in all codes at all levels. Our staff and student coaches all get opportunities to stay ‘up-to-date’ with the latest coaching skills and we will endeavour to remain ‘ahead of the pack’ on the sports field!
This year we will also start a mountain bike club. This will start with a tour down to Durban and back at the end of 2nd term.
