The sports choices change each term and students are able to select their preference.

House Sport Events

The School runs a variety of House Sports Carnivals each year. In term one students are able to participate in the Swimming Championships, in term two the Cross Country Championships and in term three the Athletics Championships. Ribbons are awarded at all carnivals for first, second and third place in each age group. At the conclusion of each carnival ‘Age Championships’ are awarded to the individuals that score the most points for their House. At the conclusion of each year the House Cup is awarded to the winning House. The ‘Melbourne Cup’ is contested by Kyle House, Nicholls House and Walton House.
