Sport

Victoria Park has a proud tradition of team spirit and participation in sports. Derby Days against our local rival schools are fiercely contested, while many sports participate in school leagues that embrace schools from the entire Port Elizabeth and Uitenhage area. Several sports undertake regular tours to other centres to play matches or tournaments against national opposition.

 

The school teams and individual representatives have yielded excellent results in all competitive sports. A large number of our sportsmen and women have been included in provincial and other representative teams in recent years.

 

Sporting achievement at all levels is recognized and rewarded through the school’s Colours award system. In addition, the school’s First Teams are invited, with their parents, to an annual Sports Dinner, on which occasion a Team of the Year is announced by the headmaster.

 

The school boasts a fully-equipped gymnasium for the use of our learners. A professional exercise specialist and a physiotherapist are available to oversee the training programmes offered to our various sports teams.

Our results, news and special achievements are posted to our Facebook page regularly. Please visit us there.
