All sporting activities are a vital part of the school program. Teachers encourage students in maximum participation. Some activities, such as gym, will only be part of the program if trained instructors are available either on or off campus. Our Sport Co-ordinator is responsible for coordinating K-6 Sport (1 period a week per class) and also the coordination of school sporting events, HRIS events, and other inter-school events. The coordinator is a member of the HRIS Primary Sports’ Committee.
