At St. Stephen's, we pride ourselves on our extra-curricular sports program, that saw our children take part in over 25 different events in the last academic year. We think it is important that children experience a wide range of opportunities and so far this year children have competed in competitions involving Hockey, Football, Tag-Rugby, Basketball, Table-Tennis and Cross Country with competitions in Gymnastics, Swimming, Netball, Rounders and Cricket.
We also run an Outdoor Adventure weekend for Years 4, 5 and 6 every Easter where we venture to PGL Boreatton Park. The children spend a whole weekend in the outdoors. They have fun, test themselves physically but also learn fantastic teamwork and cooperation skills. For the last three years, we have had over 50 children (1/4 of the school) attending the weekend.
