At Stella Maris our pupils learn that sports and games are a fun, worthwhile activity. They enjoy a wide range of different activities and are given the opportunity to take part in at least two hours of physical education every week. Activities are designed to teach a range of skills and to help them develop an excellent team spirit.
After school clubs, depending on the time of year, include football, netball, cricket and tag rugby.
We participate in as many inter-school competitions as we can, with considerable success. Last year our cricket team won the Folkestone Town Council Kwik Cricket tournament for the second year in succession, and our football team reached the semi-finals of the Herald Cup.
Sports Day is one of the highlights of our school year. The children compete in a range of traditional races, from the Long Distance race to the Egg and Spoon Race, and points are awarded to the first three places. Each year the winning team is celebrated at assembly, with trophies awarded for the sprints and the long distance races.
