At St Columba’s, our boys enjoy a rich and varied sporting programme.
They embrace the opportunities with energy and enthusiasm, and achieve a very high standard in a wide range of sports. Regardless of his ability, every boy gets to experience a wide variety of different sporting activities through PE and Games lessons, as well as in a staggering array of clubs and societies.
The ethos of the Sports Department is firmly embedded in the idea that every child should be given the opportunity to develop his potential to the very best of his abilities. With this in mind, the children receive coaching from experienced teachers, each with their own fields of expertise. All pupils get the opportunity to play in competitive matches, either through fixtures against other schools or through the extensive House competition system. The emphasis is always on enjoyment, and we hope that our children leave us with a love of sport and a desire to continue participating, which will stay with them throughout their life.
We run teams at every age group from Under 8 (Prep 3) and try to include as many boys as possible in competitive matches against other schools. The main aim is to engender a love of sport and to give the children the opportunity to gain fulfilment through competitive sport. We celebrate the occasions when we are successful, but realise that enjoyment and sportsmanship are key factors in a child's sporting development.
