Children at Summer Valley School are encouraged to realise that marks are created in the classrooms but memories and personalities are created on the playing fields. It is here that children experience a myriad of emotions like euphoria, humility, defeat, resolute defiance of the scoreboard to rise against all odds to be a winner.
The school encourages its students to actively take up sports, indoor as well as outdoor, and provides them with the necessary infrastructure for cricket, football, volleyball, table tennis, badminton, basketball, roller skating, chess, athletics, shooting, gymnastics and aerobics.
