At The King’s School, we believe that sport plays in important role in promoting friendship, team-awareness and self-confidence in addition to physical well-being. While healthy competition is encouraged, the enjoyment of the game is not compromised.
As part of our values to support learners’ individual interests outside academics, our sports teams are affiliated with various sports associations, such as the Edenvale Primary Schools Cricket Association which offers learners the opportunity to play in the KFC Mini Cricket League. Other associations include the Johannesburg Primary Schools Football Association (JPFSA), Independent Soccer Schools League (ISSL), and the South African Christian School’s Sports Association (SACSSA).
Culture is one of the foundational pillars of developing a well-balanced learner and plays a great role in building community. Our learners have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of cultural activities, regardless of their interests and abilities in sport or academics.
Our annual high school drama production showcases an original play focusing on current issues and learners are involved in all levels of preparation and performance. Several art exhibitions are also hosted during the year to showcase our learners’ growth.
Extramural activities are offered by external tutors or coaches. They are offered at an additional cost and generally take place on the school’s premises. Some extramural activities are aimed at improving or supporting academic learning or mental and physical development, while others are purely recreational.
