Sports facilities

GN Convent School believes that educational athletics is key to a student’s academic journey and this provides outstanding opportunities to teach very essential life lessons. Therefore interscholastic athletic participation is designed as an extension of the classroom. Numerous opportunities are planned in the academic year for general participation as well as for advanced training in specialized sports, to compete in tournaments and competitions against other schools.

Students have access to a range of state-of-the-art sporting facilities such as: basketball, badminton, tennis, squash, snooker, cricket, taekwondo, football, table-tennis, yoga, aerobics, athletics, board games such as chess, carrom, etc.

Professional coaches ensure that the students reach their potential and participate in intra and interschool competitions. After school activities are conducted for extra coaching in selected sports.

We engage resident students with a multitude of weekend activities for students in their pursuit of a truly holistic education and the after-school activities run parallel to the athletics program. The numerous House sporting events regularly create a buzz around the campus which culminates in the excitement of Sports Day.
