We have numerous sporting teams and strongly encourage all students to participate in at least one sport. We believe that participating in a sport builds a healthy body, self-esteem and confidence, skill levels and a connection to our country. Enjoyment, teamwork, skill development and self-discipline are all areas that can be developed through playing sport.
