Sport takes on different significance in different schools, and in the perspectives of different stakeholders. Sport can be an expression of the prestige of the school, through the quality of the facilities and the kit of the participants. Sport can be a proxy for the success of the school, whereby winning a sporting competition indicates that a school is superior to its competitors on a broader front. Sport can be a channel for the expression of school spirit, where the crowd of cheering supporters identify with something bigger than themselves. Sport can be an avenue to future careers for the elite, providing support and opening doors for glittering success in the years to come.
