At Richard Bay Christian School, we firmly believe that every pupil should have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports from an early age. Our aim is to cultivate a love for physical activity and healthy competition in each student. To achieve this, we focus on providing competitive teams that can proudly represent our school in the Zululand community. Our academic staff are actively involved in coaching our pupils, ensuring they build relationships with the pupils both inside and outside the classroom. While we value winning, we equally prioritise skill development, sportsmanship, and the importance of teamwork. Through sport, we instill valuable life skills such as discipline, perseverance, and respect for others. We strive to create a sporting environment where pupils discover their strengths, build character, and form lasting bonds with their teammates, enriching their overall school experience.
