DSA Sports


Presbyterian High School provides players in Basketball, Table Tennis and Volleyball opportunities for a broad-based education through the development of character and the inculcation of knowledge and acquisition of skills to lead a healthy lifestyle. The Sports Excellence Programme also aims to groom the players into socially responsible pupils capable of serving and meeting the needs of the school and the community. The school deploys a team of committed teachers and engages certified coaches to develop the players’ potential and talents towards sports excellence.


The Presbyterian High School Volleyball Teams have performed well in both Zonal and National Inter schools Championships. The teams have managed to achieve top four placing in either the Zonal or National Inter schools championships consistently since the introduction of the sport in the school.


In Presbyterian High School, our Basketball Teams have consistently attained top four places in the Boys’ Zonal and National Inter-schools Championships. This is credited to our enduring commitment of the teachers, student-athletes and coaches over these years. In the four years of studies in PHS, the student-athletes are given many opportunities to participate in external competitions and in some years, overseas training trips, to sharpen their competitive skills and understanding. We strive our best to provide the boys and girls in this CCA an unforgettable learning experience in their secondary school life.
