Sports - Physical Education (PE)

Physical fitness is an important part of a child’s overall well-being. All DIS students take part in structured PE classes in addition to free play recess periods. For PE classes at the school campus, students use the fully equipped sports hall. Local swimming pools, ice-skating rinks and tennis courts may also be used for PE classes.


Our athletic programmes strive to promote good sportsmanship, strong commitment and valuable teamwork. Students can compete in a number of different sports throughout the school year, from badminton and basketball to soccer and swimming.

Student athletes have the chance to participate locally in the community but also in the German International School Sports Tournaments conference (GISST). GISST consist over twelve international schools around Germany. Each member school host two tournaments a year with over 80 students competing in each tournament.

We encourage our students to discover the physical health benefits, increased commitment and the value of teamwork  that results from participation in sports.
