DAIS offers a variety of sporting activities aimed to improve the health and fitness of our students, nurture individual talents, whilst enabling them to enjoy the recreational benefits it offers. Exposure to individual and team skills through competitive sports inculcates a sense of sportsmanship, a school-wide community spirit and a feeling of individual accomplishment amongst students. Trust, commitment, self-discipline, honesty, respect for the opponent and most importantly, grace and stoicism, whether you win or lose, is at the heart of all sports lessons at DAIS.
