Enrichment Activities

The Aspiring Athletes Program (AAP) in PE provides the opportunity for students to achieve academically while continuing their commitment to their chosen team and/or individual sport.  It also provides tutorial time for students to ensure academic requirements are being met at all times.


The gymnasium provides our students with a purpose built indoor sporting facility. The Physical Education faculty has upgraded existing equipment and installed a climbing wall. The gymnasium provides a wonderful environment for scheduled PE classes as well as lunch time training and competitions.
