Look for this button next time you are searching your child's sports team. Using this feature, all changes and updates will automatically update on your calendar.

Weekly Communication

Each week in the Explorer newsletter and on the student VLE called Ding!, we release a Weekly Sports Bulletin which has a summary of the week ahead for all sports training and fixtures. We endeavour to communicate as early as possible via our Sports Fixture Website, however, with so many changes due to facilities, staffing, weather and opposing schools, the Cobra Sports programme must be dynamic in order to provide the best opportunities for our students. The Weekly Sports Bulletin is a great tool to stay on top of all the changes that are happening

High Performance Student Athlete (HPSA) Programme

The High Performance Student Athlete (HPSA) program is an athlete-centred program of educational and pastoral assistance provided by Discovery College. The program seeks to recognise high-performance athletes participating in an elite sport offered throughout Hong Kong and competing in recognised national or international competitions.

Each student-athlete will receive support from our Athlete Friendly Coordinator through some of the following accommodations:

  • Timetable and curriculum considerations to facilitate high-frequency training and competition time, for example, offering the DP and CP over three years

  • Provision of a program that will enrich the potential of the student-athlete and provide information for career development

  • Support for the student-athlete where necessary, for time-management, study skills, relaxation and social/physical development courses in order to connect the athlete to the international world of sport.

  • studying within the MYP, DP or CP
