School Games

Spirit of the Games Values

The Spirit of the Games Values were developed by young people to identify what the experience of school sport should be built around, and focus on personal excellence through competition.

These values have been successfully applied by schools to developing a range of behaviours, qualities and inter-personal skills with their students based on sporting experiences, scenarios and attitudes. 

 

The six values are as follows...

Honesty

With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.

 

TEAMWORK

Treat everyone equally, support each other and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each other's success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.
 

Respect

Treating others politely and with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect every day, in everything you do and for everyone around you.
 

Self belief

You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.

  

Passion

Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.

Determination

Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!
