Sport and the Outdoors
Our co-curricular Sport and Outdoor program is the chance for some students to display their immense skill and fitness levels. For others, it is the opportunity to be involved in an activity that they may never have competed in before. An opportunity to make new friends and push their comfort zones.

Duke of Edinburgh Award
Each year, Year 9 students begin working towards achieving their Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. The Award has various components including volunteering, physical recreation/fitness, skill and adventurous expeditions. At the Bronze level, students are introduced to bike riding and hiking in two expeditions. They also learn skills in camp craft, teamwork and navigation along with other elements that build character and only occur in the great outdoors. The lessons learned as well as memories and friendships gained are invaluable.
In addition to co-curricular sporting opportunities, each year House Sport Carnivals are held in which all students participate; the House Athletics Carnival, House Swimming Carnival and House Fun Run. Students are also encouraged to participate in a range of other physical activities including the Netball Festival, Bike Education, Year 8 Lifesaving and State Netball and Basketball Competitions.
