Sports at Start-Rite Schools

Start-Rite Schools, Abuja, is a vibrant, happy, international learning community that offers excellent values-based education for children. In pursuit of developing confident, well-rounded, global citizens and leaders, Start-Rite Schools provides an engaging academic curriculum that offers a variety of learning opportunities including sports and other physical activities as a healthy complement to intellectual work.

At Start-Rite Schools, we do well to ensure that our students are involved in a variety of sporting activities including but not limited to soccer (click here to see a clip of one of our matches), badminton, swimming (click here to read more), running etc. We believe firmly in the fact that if either of the body or mind is not active, one will not be able to give his/her best in anything. With professional coaches offering guidance, sports at Start-Rite Schools is geared towards inculcating and promoting the essence and value of hardwork, dedication, sportsmanship, and teamwork in the life of our students to make them attain and achieve the best of physical fitness and overall well-being. 

We have a house system that provides a framework for caring for students, encouraging participation in sporting and cultural extra-curricular activities, encouraging participation in academic activities and promoting leadership development. This year’s inter-house is special not only because we have not had one in six years, but also because it is the first time a system is in place to ensure students develop stronger house loyalty and a sense of fun and friendly competition, bearing in mind the need to raise their BARS (do better in Behaviour, Academics, Responsibility and Social Skills).

With sports in mind, it is important to note that there is a champion in every child. We are committed to inspiring our students to imbibe positive and healthy life values that would help them to be and remain dogged in their pursuit of success and greatness.
