Sports & physical activity
The College offers many opportunities for students to engage in sport and physical activities. The modern hall accommodates basketball, volleyball, badminton and indoor soccer. Inside the hall is also a Fitness Centre that offers a range of machine weights, free weights and cardio machines. Throughout the year the fitness centre offers a variety of classes that are open to all students and staff at the College. These classes include Boxercise, Fat Burning, Abdominal strength, Circuit and Women's only classes.
The College also provides opportunities for the competitive sportsperson to compete in knockout competitions against other local high schools. These competitions are only available for students under 20 years of age. The College is usually represented in the following competitions: basketball, soccer, rugby league, touch, table tennis and volleyball.
The College also offers many facilities that allow all students to be involved in recreational activities. There is an oval that accommodates modified touch football and soccer. There are opportunities to participate in table tennis, basketball, badminton and volleyball. Students are able to access equipment for these activities during their recess and lunch breaks.
Throughout the school year there are a number of lunchtime competitions that all students and staff are able to enter teams into. These competitions are advertised on posters that are published around the College and include indoor and outdoor soccer, basketball, volleyball, table tennis and badminton.
I look forward to seeing many of you participating in some form of sport or physical activity throughout the year. If you have any questions regarding sport and exercise please don't hesitate to ask the Sport Co-ordinator.
Sport and physical activity is a valued and accepted part of our school's curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child. It provides a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning and is an important expression of our culture.
The participation, enjoyment and skill development of our students is the corner-stone of the school sport/ physical activity program. All our students take part in this program.
There are also opportunities to represent our school at inter-school sports competitions. As a NSW public school we benefit from the opportunities for shared activities and competitions with other schools, coordinated by school sport associations. See the School Sport Unit website for details.
