Extramural sporting activities

Extramural sporting activities and special-interest clubs are important in providing for children’s physical and social development.

Since there is limited space available at many KILT schools, as well as a lack of human resources, KILT is working with established partners to implement its sports initiatives. Active Education is currently running a pilot program in five primary schools and one high school. This will be expanded to all schools in 2019.

Funding is needed for indoor activities that enhance self-esteem and confidence, including boxing, karate, wrestling and gymnastics, and to expand team sports like netball, soccer, rugby and cricket.

Once sports participation from teachers, learners and parents is more robust and self-sustained, KILT will begin shifting its focus to sports amenities and facilities.
