In the Primary School, students from Pre-K to Year 6 interact with a wide range of different sports to spark their interests and develop strong sporting pathways.

Sparking interests.
Developing pathways.

Students have the opportunity to be involved in morning training sessions, school sport on a Friday and after school development squads.

Some of the activities Kindergarten to Year 6 students can take part include:

  • fundamental movement skills
  • ball skills
  • dance
  • skipping
  • handball
  • gymnastics
  • swimming
  • cross country
  • athletics
  • netball
  • basketball
  • rugby union
  • AFL
  • soccer
  • touch football
  • triathlon
  • and oz tag

Students can participate in sports-specific training programs such as football, netball, or basketball among others. These programs allow students to achieve in a specific sport and further develop and enhance their skills. Students then also have the opportunity to trial for College teams and represent the College at inter-school competitions and gala days.

Students' sporting interests outside the College are also supported and encouraged. Many of our students for example, who have been involved in Diving or Cricket outside the College or are developing their skills as an umpire or referee, have had the opportunity to represent the College through higher-level pathways such as through the Association of Independent Co-Educational Schools (AICES) and Combined Independent Schools (CIS).

Sport in the Primary School aims for students to gain a life-long appreciation for physical activity and to model sportsmanlike behaviour on the field and into all aspects of life.
