Every year, the school organizes a sports day and very many students participate. Certificates and prizes are given to the first three participants in each event and this has inspired them to participate. Trophies are also given to the winning houses as categorized above. The biggest trophy is given to the overall winner.
The School also participates and does well at zonal, district, regional, and national levels. Many trophies are in our stores from different levels of competition and from different sports categories.
The most exciting trophy is from the Hockey sport. Hockey was started in 2013 and the School emerged the Fouth [4th] and in 2014, it emerged the National Champions and we represented Uganda in the East African games in Dar –es- Salaam Tanzania together with Rugby where the school emerged the 4th at the National level.

The above data has inspired very many students to join the sports and have benefited greatly by doing courses of their first choice.
Various games are administrered by patrons and the Games master is the overall coordinator.
Some challenges however still exist;
- Lack of enough equipment in the various games
- There is still small money budgeted for sports in the school yet the demands of the many games are high.
- The sports complex inside the school needs a lot of money to build.
We call upon the Old Boys and well wishers to give a hand in building the sports complex.
