Fostering Progress & Achievement
The Athletics Department at Mark Twain International School strives to create and maintain a balanced and stimulating sports environment accessible to all our students during the regular school programme, but also outside the school day. Consistent with the MTIS mission, gym teachers, coaches and parents work together within the programme to inspire students to develop self-worth, but also to be considerate and to value their team members and opponents. The safe and inviting environment fosters progress and achievement, allowing students to attain high aptitudes and enjoy themselves in the process. As a result, students will improve their physical condition and skills and also learn the significance of sports discipline, teamwork, commitment, fair-play and the excitement of competing. MTIS students have equal opportunities to participate regardless of ability. The gym teachers and coaches will consider the following factors when deciding upon the teams: dexterity, previous experience, and social rapports.
