Incredible Inter House Matches

Posted: 7th March 2024

Inter House Netball and Football Competitions

Over the last few weeks, all children in classes 5 and 6 have taken part in inter house football and netball tournaments.
Both were hotly contested and Mr Moreton and Mrs Destro were very impressed, not just by the skills demonstrated , but also by the excellent teamwork shown.
Congratulations to Endeavour who retained the football trophy, and to Hope who were winners of the netball trophy.
Well done to all the children who participated.

School Houses and Benefits

Here at Vita et Pax Preparatory school we know the importance and benefits of sport, both individual and in teams.

How Interschool Competitions Benefit Students:

  • Coordinating Teamwork– Being able to coordinate and cooperate with one another to achieve a common goal is a very important life skill that everybody should have. This can be brought into effect by working together as a team. Teamwork is very important in the academic as well as the professional career of a student and therefore fostering it from a very young age is essential in improving and honing that skill.
  • Fostering Leadership Skills-This is an extension of the previous point but requires a definitive explanation all the same. Fostering leadership skills in students requires a lot of practice and real-world experience that a lot of students don’t get because of their busy academic life. However, it is important to inculcate in them, at a young age, the importance and relevance of the same and point out the various advantages of having such a mindset.
  • Developing a Growth Mindset– Having a growth mindset is actually quite important in today’s context as opposed to having a stagnant fixed mindset. It shouldn’t be a surprise that people are buying into the hustle culture of today because of this – a growth mindset can unequivocally bring about a radical change in the overall outlook of a person. Interschool competitions help students get into that hustle culture quite seamlessly.
  • Improve Social SkillsSocial skills are another important factor that needs to be inculcated in students in order to get them to be better communicators. Communication is vital in today’s information age and it is in this context that it is important that students need to improve their social skills. The best way to develop social skills is by getting into the matter down and dirty, jumping into the water, and getting wet. These social skills will undoubtedly help them interact with one another more efficiently which will help them communicate better with any and all people.
  • Platform to Showcase Talents– Interschool competitions are a great way to showcase the talents of an individual by allowing them to compete with each other. Competition always brings out the best in people as they tend to push them to their limits to beat their opponents and in the process, they will also be pushing themselves beyond what they considered their limits as well.
