Organised competitive sport is an excellent way to encourage an appreciation of physical activity, to develop a further understanding of team building and team play, to gain an insight into the role that competitive and participatory sport plays in Australian society and to engage socially with others outside the normal class/school environment.
We have a significant sports program provided by a specialist teacher and heavily supported by volunteer parent coaches, under the guidance of the Sports Committee and Governing Council. The program includes SAPSASA events, school team sports, Sports Day and Swimming Carnival (years 3-7) as well as a variety of clinics and other opportunities during the year. In order for these programs to run successfully, we rely on our community to support the coaches and ensure that students are supervised by a parent/caregiver during coaching sessions and games.
Pedal Prix is organised by a group of extremely enthusiastic parents and is for students in year 6 and 7. In 2016, we purchased a new car and successfully improved our performance, coming 9th at the 24 hour race at Murray Bridge.
Swimming & Aquatics
Students in year R-5 attend Swimming lessons in term 1. In 2017, this will be at the ARC Campbelltown.
Students in year 6 & 7 attend an Aquatics Program in term 1. This is held at West Lakes Aquatic Centre.
We offer team sports in many other areas such as cricket, footie, soccer, netball and basketball. These are a great way to become involved in our community.
