Sport

Sport at Bergvliet is seen as an extension of the curriculum and the educational experience we aim to provide.  While sport is not compulsory, it is strongly encouraged, and a majority of our pupils are involved in one or more sports.  We believe that children should experience as many different sports as possible in their Junior school years, before they have to make a narrower choice in High school.

Sports offered include tennis, cricket, athletics, swimming, hockey, cross-country, netball and dance.  We are very fortunate to have some excellent facilities which help our teams excel.

We are very lucky to have excellent coaches, many of whom have even represented their provinces or even South Africa.

From U10 level, and earlier in some sports, teams are entered in the inter-school leagues.  Over the past few years our sport has grown steadily and improved from year to year. We are very competitive in the leagues.  While we are mindful of the educational value of sport, teams are chosen on merit and commitment.

School awards may be made to those pupils representing the school 1st teams, but all pupils who achieve will be publicly recognised.
