Afterschool Sport

One of the most valued extra-curricular offerings provided by the school is our free afterschool sport (2 days per week for 7  weeks of each term) funded by the federal government's sporting schools initiative.

As part of this program, students from the primary school take part in one hour coaching sessions provided by teachers, coaches and development officers in a wide range of sports.  Across the year students take part in sports like cricket, swimming, athletics, golf, basketball, rugby league, AFL as well as a number of others.  The program is intented to support both the increased physical activity of children and the competitive ablity.  Since commencing this program our school has seen a marked increase in both the performance and invovlement of our students in competitive sport.
For secondary students interested in coaching and performance in competitive sport please see the BEAST program.
