Athletics

Go dragons!

Our competitive sports programme helps students build confidence and self-esteem while providing opportunities to problem-solve and develop character.

Our team athletic programme provides a range of competitive sports training sessions, friendly games and official tournaments to our Middle and Senior School students and aims to develop athletes who demonstrate good sportsmanship by showing respect to opponents, officials, and spectators, and by maintaining self-control.
