The Halifax Grammar School is committed to providing athletic opportunities for all of our students. Athletics, both competitive and recreational, are a cornerstone of the educational process and experience. We believe students deserve the opportunity to participate and compete at levels appropriate to their skill and interest.
It is through these competitions that Grammar strives to instill habits that will lead our students to live better and healthier lives. We recognize that athletic participation is a way for students to grow and learn the values of self-discipline, teamwork, leadership, and sportsmanship. While winning is not our main objective, we believe that when our students strive to be their best, that will lead them to succeed.
