SPORTS AT MUSIKILI
School sport is an opportunity for children to develop relationships and learn valuable life-skills outside the rigours of a classroom environment. It should not be viewed as a physical development component only, thus primarily suited to the finely tuned athletic machine, but a vehicle to discover, for all shapes and sizes. School sport in its entirety, offers so much more for children than excelling in traditional areas.
At Musikili, we aim to embrace sport as a key and fundamental aspect of the school day.
Integrated approach, where all children are involved in the afternoon programme every day in different activities.
Although there are plenty of opportunities for children to excel in competitive environments, we cater significantly for those displaying less enthusiasm, through mass participation.
Specialisation at the Primary School level is not encouraged and we offer a wide array of activities where holistic skills-development is paramount.
Fostering relationships, problem solving and adaptability are the corner stone of our afternoon programme and established through compulsory attendance.
We believe that full participation in a wide array of activities allows for children to advance in all four pillars of development: Physical, Cognitive, Social and Emotional.
Although the opportunity for competition is limited for us due to location, we endevour to provide our children with maximum exposure to the challenges necessary to succeed. This includes active participation in ISAZ based events, tournaments and festivals. Trips to Zimbabwe and South Africa are an important cog on our calendar and we continue to explore these options. Musikili Primary has become an exciting venue for festivals where Annual Hockey, Cricket, Tennis and Rugby festivals are hosted and attended by schools from Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Despite our size, Musikili Primary continues to lead the way in primary school sport throughout Zambia and we pride ourselves on the well-rounded children leaving Musikili for high schools around Southern Africa.
