At various times during the year, students from Years 3 – 6 have the opportunity to participate in the following House Sport carnivals.
- Swimming Carnival (Years 4 – 6)
- Cross Country (Years 3 – 6)
- Athletics Carnival (Years 3 – 6)
Depending on an individuals and/or teams performance (house-based time trials), they can continue to compete in a high level of competition through School Sport Victoria. The competition continues through a series of elimination carnivals including District, Division, Regional, State and finally National competition.
Throughout the year, the students in Years 5 and 6 compete against other schools in the surrounding suburbs in Inter-school sports. The students choose from the following summer and winter sports:
2017 Inter-school Sports
SUMMER (Term 1) WINTER (Term 2) Oz Tag AFL Footy Volleyball Hockey Softball Soccer Basketball Handball Lacrosse Netball Kanga Cricket Tee Ball Recreation Recreation Lawn Bowls Lawn Bowls
Due to large numbers, the children that are not participating in Inter-school sports are offered other programs outside the school Curriculum.
Along with Physical Education, the Year 3’s and 4’s participate in sport once a week. This involves all the students being mixed into different groups within their year level to participate in a variety of sports and games. This program is designed to help develop the students’ skills in sports as well as team building exercises.
Year 5/6 Sport focuses on skills and rules of the Inter-school sports that are played throughout the year.
