We have been overwhelmed by the community’s response in letting us know about all our high achieving sports alumni. Please keep the suggestions coming so we can capture all our wonderful sports champions.

The School’s first building program in 1891 gave priority to a girls’ gym: a structure open to the elements on one side, roofed in tin and floored in tanbark that served for the next 93 years. A boys’ open gym followed shortly after.

The new sports centre will provide state-of-the-art sporting facilities focused on maximising student learning outcomes, sustainability and inclusive access, to continue the School’s enduring commitment to sport and wellbeing. The centre is scheduled for completion in early 2022.

We are currently building our records for alumni who have represented their country (Australia or other) at an international level, and/or qualified for an international sports competition at Junior, U23, Senior or Masters level. If you know of a former student who qualifies (or you are one) please contact us with the following details: Name, Leaving Year, Sport, Level attained.

“Sport” means all forms of physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim at expressing or improving physical fitness and mental well-being, forming social relationships or obtaining results in competition at all levels. (The Association for Applied Sport Psychology and the European Sports Charter)
