Here at MIS we pride ourselves on offering an amazing range of sporting opportunities for all students to take up. We cater for our elite athletes and those wanting to try things for the first time. They are given a chance to put some of these skills into practice through our Inter-Class sports competitions, which are run during lunchtimes. Whole school Inter-Syndicate competitions are also held in harriers and athletics. In many instances we draw from local sporting expertise to assist our staff and volunteer coaches. Particular sport skill development is also included to some extent in our Term 1 and 4 options programmes.
