After School Sport
Students have the opportunity to represent the school in a range of sporting activities. After school sport is run by a dedicated team of teachers and parent volunteers. Sports include:
- soccer (Term 2 & 3)
- cricket (Term 4)
- basketball (Terms 1 & 2)
- run club (all year training to participate in annual City to Bay)
Selected students participate in annual SAPSASA competitions for:
- cross country
In order to give students the opportunity to try out a range of sports as part of the physical education curriculum, coaching clinics are held by community sporting organisations during school hours. This includes a variety of sports, from athletics and gymnastics to lacrosse and hockey, with sessions accommodating for students of all year levels.
Participation in school sports helps students to develop a range of interpersonal skills such as communication, negotiation, teamwork, leadership, and an appreciation of diverse perspectives. We provide opportunities for students to explore their own identities and develop an understanding of factors that influence and shape who they are. They learn how to recognise, understand, validate, and respond appropriately to their own and others’ emotions, strengths and values.
