Inter-School Fixtures

The International Secondary Schools Sports Association of Kenya (ISSSAK) has recently made inter-school competitions more demanding where most International Schools in Kenya compete for the major sports with a variety of other minor sports being introduced resulting in the increase of competitions. This setup is for the open age and the Under 15’s age groups that have a league that is played throughout the term whereas the tournaments are normally played towards the end of the term on a selected day.

The younger age groups teams – Under 13’s, Under 11’s and the Under 9’s – mainly compete against local Prep Schools – St. Andrews, Pembroke and Shah Lalji Nangpar Academy. These teams also travel to Nairobi for matches against other schools as well as to take part in Prep School Tournaments for the major sports.

 

Inter-House Competitions

Greensteds School like many Schools keep the competition within the School itself where all the students are grouped into 3 houses – BATIAN, NELION and KIBO – which are named after 3 of the highest peaks from Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya resembling the high standards the students achieve throughout their sports.

Inter-house events, therefore, are competitions for top honors as the best house in the school. This happens in all the Major Sports i.e the annual Sports Day, Swimming Gala and Cross-country.
