More on St Andrew’s School for Girls:
The senior school’s sports programme is a vital component of each girl’s education. Apart from enabling them to enjoy the many health benefits of physical activity, it provides them with yet another opportunity to grow in leadership ability and self-esteem. We participate in leagues, festivals and tournaments as well as local and international sports tours. Our girls perform in district, provincial and national teams across our sports. At St Andrew’s, we constantly strive to attract top coaches to ensure that the correct technique and training methods are applied. We encourage our girls to be physically active and focus on instilling a love for sport and leading a healthy active lifestyle.
Golf and Equestrian sports at St Andrew’s take place at the Kensington and Royal Johannesburg golf clubs and at riders’ own stables respectively.
