Participation in sport not only aids our students’ physical development, improving their coordination and developing their skills in a variety of sports, but also helps them to learn how to be part of a team.
Sports are very much part of the curriculum at Dehong. We teach our students the importance of sportsmanship and leadership through sporting competition. We believe it is important for our students to experience and celebrate success and, equally, to learn how to lose a match or tournament with grace.
Students from our schools compete against others across the DCI family of schools in the Dulwich Games each year. In April 2015, we held the first Dulwich Olympiad, a large-scale sports competition among our schools that will take place every four years. The next Dulwich Olympiad will be hosted by Dulwich College in London in 2019, when students from all our schools will have the opportunity to participate in Dulwich College’s quadricentennial celebrations.
