Sporting Exchanges

For more than 30 years, The British Schools and the St. Andrew’s Scots School in Buenos Aires have been sharing sporting exchanges.  These exchanges include Rugby, Hockey and Basketball matches for Senior students and Rugby and Hockey matches for Junior students in Form 6.

These activities not only provide an opportunity for students to strengthen existing bonds of friendship and build new ones, they also promote teamwork, values and fair play, and enhance personal growth as well as physical development.
