From our Inspired Sports at PaRK IS students

My name is Domingos, and I’m 17 years old. PaRK IS sponsored my participation in the US taekwondo world championship in 2019, in which I won 4th place. It was a thrilling opportunity to travel to the States, and to represent my school and sport at such a high-level and prestigious event.

Be an ambassador for the school

As a student-athlete in the Inspired Sports Programme, a high level of commitment is required. Students can follow their sporting dream and take active participation in the sports they are passionate about. In return, a level of responsibility is demanded when catching up on missed lessons and to ensure all assessments are completed in line with the teachers’ expectations.

PaRK IS is already home to talented and keen learners. To join the sports programme, students must have demonstrated a good attitude towards learning and be a kind and respectful member of the school community.

Successfully enrolled and attitudinally engaged students will be able to renew their membership annually.

Push yourself to be the best

 

PaRK IS is proud to achieve high grades each year.

 

Due to the high standard and level of enthusiasm and commitment that our Inspired Sports Programme students show, in the event that a student does not show a good attitude towards learning and fails to show the responsibility needed to catch up with missed classes, sadly they will be removed from the programme. This is to maintain our high academic standards, and to enable all our other students to excel at the sport they love.
