Year 7 Gala Day

Once a year our Year 7 students have the opportunity to compete at sporting gala days where they play other schools in our zone in the sport of their choosing. On these days, we enlist the help of our year 9 and 10 PASS students who act in coaching and management roles for each of the teams. 

Year 7 Sport

This year, Year 7 students will be partaking in sports activities once a fortnight on Tuesday afternoons (periods 3, 4 and 5). These activities will require the students to catch a bus from school to different venues throughout the year. You can see these venues in detail below. They have been carefully selected by the Sports Organiser, Mr Abernethy, as venues which will engage your child and help in developing their fundamental movement skill and fitness, as well as providing enjoyment. Year 7 students will wear their sport uniform to school on their designated sport day.
