Although School competitive sports have been paused for the foreseeing future, due the the pandemic, it doesn't stop our students from following their passions and succeeding.
It has been an exceptional month of sports achievements at ESK! Some non-contact sports that ESK students have been taking part in, include Swimming, Tennis and Horse-riding.
