Sport plays an important role in the College curriculum and many students gain significant satisfaction and success in this area. The sport curriculum covers a variety of sports ranging from the traditional House sports of swimming, athletics and cross country through to sports such as football, netball, tennis, cricket, table tennis, lawn bowls, claybird, golf among others. All students have the opportunity to pursue their sporting aspirations to their highest level.
Students who perform well in House Sports gain the opportunity to represent the College at the Wimmera Secondary Schools Sports Association Championships. In turn, students have the opportunity to progress to the Western Zone Secondary Schools Championships, followed by the Victorian Secondary Schools State Championships and even the opportunity to be selected in the Victorian team to compete at National level. Stawell Secondary College has a very proud history in this area and we are held in very high regard at state level.
In addition to the traditional school carnivals, all students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of team sports. There are many staff members who voluntarily coach and escort our students around the state to provide them with the opportunity to pursue sports. Past students have been successful at state level and represented Victoria.
Many sport activities require our students to travel outside Stawell. This may result in a travelling cost and students will be notified prior to the sporting event of the costs. Students who represent the College are required to wear the sports uniform which consists of the College red “Sport & Physical Education” polo shirt, predominately blue shorts, tracksuit pants or skirt and the College jumper or spry jacket. (The College red “Sport & Physical education” polo shirts are available from Fosters Mensland. All Year 7 students will be required to wear the polo shirt at the commencement of the year).
For all your sporting enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact the Sport’s Coordinator at the College.
