Head of Sport
Welcome to the home of the IBEX
A cornerstone of a great school is having great pride, passion and team spirit amongst the school community.
At SISD, sport is one of the ways we harness this pride and passion, and we are committed to ensuring every student has the opportunity to take part, but also to excel if they can. It is our goal to use competitive sport to build on the values, lessons and instruction provided during day-to-day lessons, and as part of our curriculum.
It is also our aim to create a sense of community and to build a common bond through support for our teams. Finally, we want to instill an unmatched sense of pride through commitment, teamwork, perseverance, effort, and the ability for students to represent their school in sporting and athletic competitions.
Les sports proposés par la SISD et les locaux sont phénoménaux - mes enfants ont adoré essayer pleins de sports différents, concourir dans les équipes de l'école et tout simplement représenter leur école.
