Junior School Sport

St Hilda’s provides students with a safe and enthusiastic learning environment in which they can explore movement. All students are encouraged to become involved and to fulfil their potential. They are encouraged to take part in interhouse, interschool, club and state competitions.

Through sport, St Hilda’s provides an holistic approach to education and aims to:

  • Develop the student’s mind, body and soul through participation in sport
  • Promote a healthy, active lifestyle by providing all students with the opportunity to participate in physical activity

  • Develop self awareness and identity through participation in sport
  • Develop a sense of fair play and sportsmanship through cooperative group behaviour
