Sporting pursuits play a fundamental role in producing balanced and well-rounded students. Such pursuits teach students to appreciate hard work and training, commitment to a team, sportsmanship and dedication to fair play.
Each week the students participate in one hour of formal sport that is conducted by the class teacher and at times specialists in the field. In Term 2 and Term 3, students from Year 3 to Year 6 are offered a variety of sports to choose from including dance, soccer, fitness and netball. Students are grouped into two Stage 2 groups and two Stage 3 groups, with the groups rotating through the four activities. Year 2 students participate in an intensive swimming instruction course, which is organised by qualified AustSwim teachers.
Cricket, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Soccer, Touch and Oz Tag coaches also visit the school to conduct workshops. The pathway for students seeking to compete at a higher level is School, Regional, Diocesan, Polding and PSSA. Students are given the opportunity to try out for sports even if they are not played at school level, through Regional and Diocesan selection trials. These sports include Football (all codes), Tennis, Hockey and Cricket to name a few.
As a school, we pride ourselves on the outstanding achievements of our students in a variety of sporting events. Many students excel in their individual and team events where they have the opportunity to compete and display their skills to the wider community.
