Sports at St Louis
Sports and Extra-Curricular activities
In St Louis we firmly believe that extra-curricular activities are an integral part of the school’s programs. We encourage all students to take advantage of the opportunity provided to participate in one or more of the extra-curricular activities provided here in St Louis. We firmly believe that through participation in extra-curricular activities young people may gain experiences which will give each and every one of them the opportunity to develop the skills and values needed to become a valued student within the school community.
We believe that participation in a sound extra-curricular program contributes to the development of health and happiness, physical skills, emotional maturity, social competence and moral values. We believe that a sound extra-curricular program teaches the participants the value of co-operation, as well as the spirit of competition that is important to our society. We understand the need to provide a wide range of activities and strands in order to meet the needs of student’s individual interests. Students learn how to work with others for the achievement of group goals and become socially active. We believe that the spirit of fair play and the will to win are valuable to the development of a healthy mind and healthy body. Every student is encouraged to get involved in school sport and we at St Louis provide both an individual and team sport avenue for all throughout the school year.
EVERYONE plays, EVERYONE gets a turn, EVERYONE tries. We are not here to develop just the talented, BUT EVERYONE! In Physical Education, with everybody taking part, EVERYONE WINS!!."
