Every year the students at Island School compete against one another in a cumulative competition for the Inter-House Trophy, the Pierre Steynberg Cup, which is presented at a whole school assembly.
All students at Island School will represent their House in at least three of the Inter-House competitions held throughout the year, swimming, athletics and cross-country. All students will participate in the heats for these events, gaining valuable points for their House.
The finals of the swimming and the athletics competitions are whole school events held at Victoria Park Swimming Pool or Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park Swimming Pool and Wan Chai Athletics Stadium. Parents are welcome to come along and support their children. Houses encourage participation from spectators, who dress up in House colours, bring mascots and create banners to support the finalists competing from their House.
The remaining events run periodically throughout the year. We combine sporting competitions including; basketball, netball, volleyball, softball, table tennis, football, touch rugby, biathlon and water polo with debating, a quiz, battle of the books and chess to allow all students the chance to showcase their abilities.
