Our primary focus is on participation which builds students’ self-esteem and confidence in addition to improving student’s physical and social skills.
Our Sports program for Students in Prep to Year 6 is aimed at increasing students’ fundamental motor development skills through the experience of various modified games. In the later years, we focus on increasing students’ knowledge, understanding and skill level in various modified games.

In addition to these sporting programs we run:
- Beach Skills and Surf Safety lessons

Outdoor education forms a core part of our wellbeing program for students. Camps, activities and expeditions are designed to challenge students mentally and physically and to disconnect from devices and the hustle and bustle of day to day life. Students detox from all social pressures and reconnect with their thoughts and feelings in an unpredictable environment that can be testing and challenging.
