"We believe that the value of sports goes beyond reaching the recommended levels of physical activity. Participation in sports can support social and personal development and health throughout life. On the field of play team work and the impact of individual performance on the team becomes highlighted when faced with the unpredictable nature of outside influences such as referees and the weather. The ability to face defeat and victory with grace, and to live by a code of sportsmanship and fair play, no matter the circumstances, become an integral part of our lives and they are values we never lose." – Mr David du Toit, head of St Stithians Boys' College
