Sporting Activities

 

At Athlone Park Primary, the co-curricular programme is considered an integral part of the education programme offered to the children.

While the skills and etiquette of particular sports are being taught, the overriding aim of education is uppermost in each professional's mind - namely, to enable each child to develop to his or her full potential and to arrive at a level of adulthood as an honest, courteous, reliable person, a credit to the school, his/her parents and himself/herself.

The school selects teams to compete for both local and national events, always seeking to strike a balance between playing with the best team available, giving talented children opportunities to perform at the highest level and offering as many pupils as possible the opportunity to represent the school.

At all times our pupils are encouraged to give of their very best, to play hard but fairly, to be humble in victory and to lose graciously.  Team-spirit, leadership, and camaraderie are developed through all avenues on the sports field.

Many pupils were selected to represent local and provincial teams during 2018.
