SPORTS AND ACTIVITIES
Apart from the provision of equal opportunities for all students, through diversity of learning, there is also a Co-curricular experience that widens their awareness and enables them to reach and expand their potentials. We encourage our students to follow their interests, develop new skills and most importantly, fully enjoy all aspects of school life.
As part of the goals and objectives of the school system to give the child all round development, which includes cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains, MGHS has very robust sporting activities, which keep students busy and prevent them from engaging in unproductive and unprofitableenterprises.
Students are provided opportunities in the following sports and games: athletics, basketball, table tennis, football, hockey, badminton, tennisand chess. The school also holds her Inter-House Sports Competition annually. The aim is to instil in the students, the values of fair play, honest competition and good sporting behaviour as individual participants, team players and spectators.
