Kellett School made enhancing our sports provision as one of our top priorities. Our vision is to make Kellett School one of the leading sporting schools not only in Hong Kong, but in Asia. Find out more by watching the video to the right!
Sports at Kellett School is provided in a uniquely extensive way for Hong Kong. Students are given a multitude of opportunities to take part in sports, train and even work on their leadership skills.
PE is a compulsory part of the curriculum, and focuses on educating students on fitness and developing their motor skills. It also allows students to learn about different sports, techniques, movements and tactics. All students participate in PE, up until Year 11.
As well as PE, students participate in 'Games', which allows students to focus on our five main sports, netball (girls), football, rugby, basketball & swimming. Games sessions run in conjunction with PE, and allows students to take what they learn in the curriculum, and put it into practice on the pitch.
In order to provide our students with the best coaching possible, specialist staff have been hired to bolster our sports staff. Our team of PE teachers and Sports Coaches boast an impressive list of honours, including international caps, professional-level experience and high-level club representation.
Many of our students go on to national honours, representing Hong Kong in various sports. Our links with local sport clubs and organisations are very strong and continue to grow, as does our reputation for sport within Hong Kong.
We understand at Kellett that some students will continue to thrive in team sports, whereas others love the freedom to choose from more individualised sport/exercise pathways. At this point in a Kellett students sporting education, we strongly believe in student choice and so from Year 10 our students are supported by teachers and coaches to explore and then refine their sport/exercise pathways.
Strength & Conditioning
Our Strength & Conditioning program focuses on building the whole athlete through Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD). We aim to educate all students on our core principles of injury prevention, proper exercise technique and functional movement quality to encourage a safe and enjoyable active lifestyle.
Student Athlete Mentoring Programme (SAMP)
The Student-Athlete Mentoring Programme (SAMP) consists of students who have been individually invited to join and who will partake in a variety of activities and leadership opportunities.
Hong Kong athlete Stephanie Cuvelier recently talked to our SAMP group about what it takes to be an international sports person. Having represented Hong Kong in both Rugby 7s and Netball, Stephanie was able to give a valuable insight and knowledge to our SAMP students.
