Hazrath Ali (RA) is reported to have said: “Refresh your minds from time to time, for a tired mind becomes blind.”
In keeping with the nourishment of mind, body and soul, MEIS endeavours to ensure for maximum participation in sporting activities. Despite the lack of recreation space at the school and proper sporting facilities, our learners are given exposure to various forms of sports including; netball, soccer, cricket and swimming.
The AMS Netball tournament has become a prestigious annual event in the AMS calendar and affords our female learners the opportunity to participate in healthy competition within an Islamic environment.
MEIS embarked on the formation of a Mini Cricket club at our school. The cricket club was opened to learners from the age group 7-8 years old.
Alhamdulillah, our school has being hosting an annual sports day from the year of inception, which is 1996. The Athletics inter-house meeting is held annually at the Chatsworth Stadium , normally in the second term of school. Learners participate in track, field and novelty events. Field events cover, long jump, shot putt and tug o war. Mohamed Ebrahim Islamic School encourages maximum participation of its learners and encourages competitiveness. Our sports day is normally graced by a wonderful turn out of parents and spectators.
Our best athletes also represent our school at the AMS Interschool athletics.
In keeping with the sunnah of Nabi Muhammad (SAW), swimming is offered to all learners at the school. Learners are transported via the school bus to the respective pools for swimming lessons. Coaching is undertaken by experienced and qualified instructors from the Learn to Swim Academy. A swimming gala is normally held at the end of the term to afford our learners the opportunity to compete and display their swimming abilities.
Our learners also participate in the AMS zonal and provincial swimming galas. Many of our swimmers are members of the Bayview swimming club.
Learners at our school also participate in AMS Soccer Tournament, hosted by the Association of Muslim Schools. Some of our players are also part of the Bluff Rangers Football club. Renewed interest in the soccer for learners from 6-12 years has led to parents assisting in the training of soccer at the Palm Road grounds every Saturday morning.
