SPORTING FACILITIES AND FIXTURES

The College is ideally situated within walking distance of 5 local sporting fields.  When necessary, students walk or travel by bus to venues under the supervision of the teaching staff.  In addition, the College has two basketball courts, a volleyball court, fully equipped gymnasium and a multi-purpose hall used for basketball, volleyball and indoor soccer.

PROCEDURES FOR THURSDAY SPORT

Sport is held every Thursday afternoon in place of periods 3 and 4.  All boys are expected to attend.  Doctors’ appointments and other personal business are not to be arranged for Thursday afternoons.  It is normal school time and therefore usual attendance requirements exist.

Those boys who have a special ability in a given sporting field are expected to be available to represent the College at all times.
