About Sport

#SVPSforthewin

Sport at Sun Valley Group of Schools is a massive part of day to day life in our organisation. A student at SVGoS takes part in at least one Summer and one Winter Sport.

Each and every day our learners venture out to the fields to complete the 1km Walk-it Circuit. This is a specially designed circuit to enhance fitness, build muscle and co-ordination and cross the mid-line to assist learning.

In class, learners take part in a number of Movement activities. They perform Movement songs which are specifically designed to cross the Horizontal and Vertical Midlines. This “wakes up” the brain and aids learning in various subjects such as Literacy or Mathematics.

They also perform daily Mind Moves, techniques developed by a friend of the School, Dr Melodie De Jager. She specialises in enhancing learning through particular movements of the body. These also help our learners to feel safe and create a sense of belonging.

We are a competitive Sporting school, where not only are our best teams selected to represent their respective age groups, but all players are holistically developed under the guidance of our coaching staff.
