Being a middle-sized school, every student has the opportunity to participate in a range of sports.
We have a long-standing partnership with Life Saving Victoria and a proud tradition of competing successfully in zone and state level competitions.
All students have the opportunity to be involved in a range of popular sports and compete against other schools in the district in a round robin format each term. Successful teams at District level can proceed to Southern Metropolitan Region and then on to State finals.
House sports will be conducted for swimming, athletics and cross-country. Students are allocated to Houses as they arrive in the school.
Students have the opportunity to compete in Athletics, Swimming, Cross-Country, Summer Sports and Winter Sports, all of which continue on to the State level, culminating in the Victorian State Schools competitions.
Teachers train and coach all these teams and coaching sessions are held at lunch time and after school. Sport has been included as a part of the curriculum for all students in Years 7 and 8.
The two-year Advance Outdoor Education program is comprehensive and includes camps, lifesaving training, excursions, first aid training and adventure activities that enhance personal and social skills and develop teamwork, initiative and self-reliance.
Physical Education in Years 7 and 8
In Years 7 and 8, Physical Education classes enable students to learn the importance of cooperative behaviour and participation through activities such as athletics, volleyball, cricket, role playing, fitness, swimming, soccer, gymnastics, decision-making activities, hockey, football, basketball, netball, softball, futsal, indoor games and tennis.
Participation in these activities allows students to meet the challenges provided by varied experiences and to develop positive social skills for the future. There is also a major Health component in the curriculum.
Sport Education in Years 7 and 8
Sport Education is compulsory in Years 7 and 8 and runs for one period each week.
The aims of the program are to introduce students to a range of sports and to increase the activity levels and health of students. Students are required to wear their PE uniform for Sport Education.
Sports covered may include cricket, tennis, badminton, table tennis, football, soccer, hockey, netball, futsal, touch rugby, basketball and volleyball, as well as recreational options like fitness, minor games, walking, swimming and dance.
Each term students involved in competitive sport classes will have the opportunity to play against other schools in the district, with winners of the round-robin format invited to play in Southern Metro finals.
Students are placed in a sport based on their personal preferences.
