Sports & physical activity
In Stage 4 (Year 7 & 8) sport is part of the normal pattern of study in the student timetable.
In Stage 5 (Year 9 &10) and in Year 11, sport remains compulsory, but is based on activities held on a Thursday afternoon. These activities include participation in 'Zone Sport" - competing in school teams against teams from other local high schools, or recreational sport, where students choose an activity.
Knockout teams are formed on a 'needs' basis and compete in competition with schools in the Sydney area in a variety of sports. In recent years, a number of teams have reached the final stages and competed against teams from other areas of the state.
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.
