At ISK we believe that the purpose of the educational-based athletics program is to promote student well-being in a way that complements and extends the taught curriculum while supporting our Education Aims. Participation is regarded as a privilege, where students-athletes are role-models of the ISK Core Values.
Our goal is to promote a healthy lifestyle through movement, exercise and sport for all of our student-athletes. That means the same commitment to excellence that permeates the classroom is also evident on the playing field, court or swimming pool.
Our program begins in Grade 1 and runs through Grade 12. Elementary students participate in several sports such as basketball, soccer, swimming, tennis and field hockey. At the Middle and High School levels, we field well-coached, competitive teams in a variety of sports.
Our varsity teams represent the school with pride against local and international competition, and we have a high level of student participation. We also offer intramural competitions and clubs, ensuring a well-rounded sports program.
