Sport @ DNC

We ensure that there is balance for our students between Academics as well as Sport and Culture – There’s a sport for everyone

Our aim with the sports programs at Durban North College is order to encourage the holistic development of every pupil and we therefore motivate Students to participate in some form of sport in order to:

  • Improve basic physical, motor and fitness abilities & extend the range of experiences in physical activity
  • Promote the development of a healthy lifestyle
  • Improve the development of certain life skills such as respect, honesty and sportsmanship
  • Promote social development such as working as a group to reach certain goals, leadership and tolerance
  • Improve emotional development (self-esteem, self-worth, self-motivation) while experiencing joy, optimal participation and good sporting behavior
