Physical Education & Sports Department
The Physical Education & Sports Department follows the philosophy “a sound mind in a healthy body” by facilitating a range of activities for students through our Physical Education and Sports programmes. The College’s sports programme has yielded some great results, with 2014/2015 first place finish at the International Schools Sports Association of Ghana (ISSAG) competitions in Swimming (girls and boys), Volleyball (girls and boys), Tennis (girls), Table Tennis (girls and boys), Track and Field (girls, boys and overall), Hockey (girls and boys), Basketball (girls) and Soccer (girls and boys). In all, the school won 15 trophies at the 2014/2015 ISSAG competitions.
Every student participates in at least one sport two days per week while some students participate in a number of sports. Students can enjoy various sports solely for leisure or can become members of the school’s team at a competitive level, requiring daily practice.
The SOS-HGIC Sports Department oversees over ten teams, including:
- Table Tennis
- Track and Field
Students at the College compete against various international schools and amongst themselves. SOS-HGIC plays schools such as Tema International School, Ghana Christian International High School, Faith Montessori School, Morgan International School, Ghana International School and Akosombo International School at the International Schools Sports Association of Ghana (ISSAG) competitions. There are presently 14 schools that compete in ISSAG competitions. Within the college, the Sports Department hosts events such as Swimming Competitions, Volleyball Competitions, Track and Field Competitions, Inter-Hostel Soccer League (ISL), and Inter-Hostel Basketball Competitions. Students have countless ways to enjoy sports and demonstrate their athletic abilities.
