Why Do We Play Sport at Primary School

Its an essential component in the development of any child

Prep School Sports is an essential element in the development of any child. At Cowan House we adopt a holistic approach to education with sport playing an integral part. We provide age appropriate skills whilst growing the ability of each child. We strive to compete at all levels and across all age groups, whilst being guided by our Sports Vision Statement that reads: “Coaching human beings; developing skills through opportunities.” This visions statement is applicable to children, coaches and parents alike.

Team sports are compulsory at Cowan House and we believe in participation, developing skills, learning about yourself and others, and most of all the enjoyment of sport.  We introduce P.E. in Grade RR and formal sporting practice begins in Grade 1. From Grade 3, sport teams are formalised and matches more competitive.

​Many of our sports coaches serve as both regional and provincial selectors and conveners for both boys’ and girls’ sports.  We are fortunate to be able to call upon past International and Provincial sportsmen and women to add expertise to the sporting programme, throughout the year.

​Our sporting facilities include an indoor centre, a heated swimming pool, tennis courts, an impressive 3km cross-country track and five sports fields which include a turf cricket pitch.
