Sport

The purpose we see for sport at Cornerstone Christian School is to encourage the development of sport as a Godly pursuit impacting:

  • Children’s physical development, of their bodies that God has created.
  • Children’s spiritual development, in doing their best for God.
  • Children’s mental development, in learning to make right, instant  decisions.
  • Children’s spatial development, in being aware of things happening around them, to others and to themselves.
  • Community building.

Please note that students will need to use their school email and password to access some of the information on the sports website.
