Weekly Sport Program

The exciting new sports program that was introduced in 2014 is here to stay!!! This program was designed so that all students are able to experience a variety of different sports and never do the same sport twice. In order to do this, students will paricipate in a paid sport for five weeks in Terms 1 and 3. For the other five weeks each term they will be using a local or school venue. In Terms 2 and 4 the Inter-House Sport Competition will run.
