Sport in Stage 6
Year 11 students have the opportunity to select from grade sport or social sports on a Thursday afternoon. Year 12 are offered the chance to partake in grade/social sport during the summer and winter competitions only. If a student chooses to participate then they have committed themselves to the team for the duration of the season.
All students have the opportunity to participate in the St Ives High School Annual Carnivals (Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics). Dependent on their results in these carnivals students are selected to compete in the progressive carnivals: Zone, Area, CHS/State and Nationals.
St Ives High School enters into multiple sports to compete in the Sydney North Knockout Competition. These sports are supported by members of the teaching staff that have interest/expertise in the given sport.
Students that compete at a high level out of school are given the opportunity to trial for Ku-ring-gai Zone or Sydney North teams. From their students can be selected to play for NSW and possibly at a National level.
When a student shows a true interest in a sporting field, every opportunity is ventured with that child to try and achieve all personal goals. This includes giving students to contacts and support to help achieve the coaching course available.
