Sport is an integral part of Chisipite Senior School life and plays an important role in the development of the person as a whole. Chisipite Senior School has a proud sporting tradition, and we applaud those who play for enjoyment as much as those who excel.
Sport helps the pupils develop many qualities they can rely on now, and later in life, such as teamwork, leadership and fair play. Pupils from all age groups are strongly encouraged to participate in the wide variety of sports offered each term.
Sporting facilities are available on the school grounds, which enables our pupils to always have access to them. Chisipite has all weather tennis courts, basketball courts, an athletic track and field, squash courts, hockey fields, volleyball courts, soccer fields a 25m FINA approved swimming pool which is also used for water polo, and various other sporting facilities.
Inter-House and Inter- Schools’ Sports’ Days see the Chisipite Senior School community out in force to cheer on our school and House Teams. It is at these events that you are truly able to feel the spirit and passion of the girls towards their school and fellow pupils.
The school considers sport a major component of the learning experience and pupils are encouraged to develop their interest through competition, extra-curricular participation and House activities. Modern and well-equipped facilities are the foundation of Chisipite Senior School’s tradition of sporting excellence.
