Primary School Sport and PE

The PE program is designed to develop common sports skills. We believe that physical development of a child should be comprehensive and fun.

All students are taught basic swimming and water survival skills from Prep. Each week during the summer months, students attend a local aquatic centre where they receive professional instruction in learning to swim, stroke correction, surf survival and life-saving techniques.

From years 4 through 6, our students compete in inter-school sport. A variety of summer and winter sports engage the students' interest and build their self-confidence and sense of accomplishment. In addition to these sports, students have the opportunity to represent King's at the annual swimming, athletics and cross-country carnivals.

High School Sport

The high school sports program runs throughout the school year. Intra-school and inter-school swimming carnivals are the first major events of the year. These are followed by similar events for cross-country competitors. Track and field competition becomes the focus of the sports calendar towards the end of the first semester.

A summer and winter season of inter-school sports competitions (see below) give students the opportunity to develop their team-playing skills further.

Each year, students from King's scale the ladder of success and gain selection in local district, state and national teams.

House Sport

All King's students (including our Pre Preps) are assigned to one of King's four houses - Finney, Newton, Rayleigh and Tyndale. Year 3 to 12 students compete inter-house in three major sports carnivals each year: swimming, cross country and athletics. Prep to Year 2 students enjoy their own mini-versions in running and athletics. These fun and colourful events are "must sees" for parents!

Inter-School Sports

King's students from Year 4 to Year 12 are privileged to compete in regular inter-school sport. This provides an exciting opportunity for regular safe, challenging and good-spirited competition.

While everyone plays to win, the main goal of inter-school sport is to exercise, improve skills and interact with other young people in the local community. King’s students develop an attitude of fair play while striving to perform and compete at their very best.
