Sporting programs

Physical education programs in Term 1 and 4 are focused on swimming in the school's heated pool. These lessons allow for 'learn to swim' in Year 1, and stroke improvement and lifesaving skills from Years 2 to 7.

A Swimming Club exists within the school. Learn to swim classes and training sessions are offered before and after school.

House system

Children are allocated to one of four houses.

House names have been chosen from Scottish Clan names, and in the case of each house the spelling of the Clan has been retained. The colour associated with each house has been derived from the predominant colour in the Clan tartan.

Houses compete at both the whole school and year level for sporting achievement. The four houses are:

  • MacQuarrie, Red
  • MacArthur, Green
  • MacKenzie, Blue
  • MacLeod, Yellow
