Sport

Athletics

In Athletics we offer a range of disciplines including sprinting, middle distance, long jump, high jump and shot put.

Our annual Athletics Day takes place at the beginning of the year.

This is a very exciting time at our school because all the learners are involved and get a chance to participate.

Each and every learner is included in this exciting fun-filled afternoon.

Inter-house activities play a major role in the extra-curricular program.

Lord Milner prides itself in the achievements of learners at Provincial level in most of the sports offered.

Hockey

At Lord Milner, we enjoy playing Hockey.

We select a junior - and senior girls team yearly. Matches are played against local schools.

Basic Hockey and social skills empower our girls to play with authority.

Netball

Netball teach the girls to work together as a team and improve their hand-eye coordination and social skills.

It requires the players to sprint and change direction quickly.
