Sport is an integral part of the school's life, with a dedicated sports period as part of the school day for each grade. There are a variety of summer and winter sporting codes available and many of our learners are selected as representatives of both provincial and national teams. In addition to participating in sports leagues, the school has annual derbies against other high schools where meets are held across the winter sporting codes.
