Throughout the year, our students have the opportunity to trial for various representative sports including hockey, rugby league, soccer, netball, tennis, cricket and touch football.

As part of the Central Region, our students participate in Gala Days for soccer, netball and cricket.

During Term 2 and 3, our students participate in professional coaching in gymnastics and modified sports through Primarily Active. 

Our school is part of the Good for Kids framework that encourages the use of simple equipment and activities to keep students moving throughout the school day. Our spacious playground offers a huge oval for games such as soccer and tag at lunch and there is play equipment in our shade area. Our students have a wide range of choices to keep active on the playground.
