Secondary Sport


Healthy & active bodies for active minds

We believe sport is an integral part of creating a positive, well-rounded schooling experience for our students.

Sport and physical activity help to build social, emotional and physical skills. It teaches our students independence, resilience and teamwork, providing valuable opportunities to develop initiative, creativity, persistence, problem-solving, communication and collaboration.

Students in Year 7-10 have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports weekly. The variety of sports offered each term is determined by the season and availability of facilities.
