Sports at Heritage - The Best ICSE School in Dehradun

A school can’t just be about the classrooms and the classroom teaching. Students can’t learn it all sitting within the four closed walls of a classroom. In fact, learning is all about exposure, experience, and practice. The Heritage School has always upheld this philosophy. We believe that our students should, along with the classroom learning, excel in various other fields and inherit qualities that would shape their character.  We also believe that sports is one of the most important catalyst for the growth of the children.

This is the reason why we encourage sports so much on our campus. At Heritage, we always make it a point to involve every student in as many sports as possible. Sports not only helps the students grow their physique and stay fit but more importantly, it enshrines in them qualities like discipline, leadership, teamwork, and creativity. We don’t see a better way than sports to help the students develop these essential qualities.

The various sporting facilities available at our school include football, basketball, cricket, badminton and table tennis. Facilities for skating and athletic sports are also available.

The school participates, as well as organizes several regional and national sporting tournaments. Recently, the Shri Rohitash Memorial Inter School Super 8’s Cricket Tournament witnessed participation from 24 schools from across the city of Dehradun. The tournament was organized for the 9th year in a row, and the best thing to have happened is that the Heritagians won the tournament for the first time ever.

Apart from this an Inter-House Boys and Girls Basketball Tournaments was also organized separately for the Junior and Senior classes. Inter-Council Schools Table Tennis, Volleyball and Football tournaments are also organized regularly by the Dehradun school.

One of the larger purposes of this special focus on sports is to ensure the overall health and fitness of the students. This is measured by regular health camps and checkups in the school itself. We are glad that we have been able to see an upward swing in the average health parameters of the school students.

Given all the special focus and the enthusiasm with which the administration and faculty of the school promote sports, you can stay assured that when at The Heritage School – the best School in Dehradun, your child is going to excel at sports. We have open the admissions for the session 2018-19.
