Sports Houses

Our Sports Houses are Fraser (Red), Bradman (Green), Cuthbert (Blue), and Laver (Yellow).  Children are allocated to one of these houses on enrolment. Our students participate in house swimming carnivals, house cross country, house athletics and sports days.  These activities are an opportunity for children to display the skills learned in their physical education lessons with emphasis on participation. 


  

Interschool Sport
 
Interschool sport is held on Friday afternoons for students in Years 5 and 6. Students involved in interschool sport are invoiced at the beginning of each "sport" term a fee which covers the cost of transport and the use of some facilities.  Schools in the West Akuna District participate in the interschool sports competition.  Each semester, different sports are offered to give children the opportunity to learn and enjoy a wide range of team sports.  Typically, Semester One sports on offer are Touch Football, Netball, AFL and Soccer.  Semester 2 usually includes Flag Tag, Rugby League and Basketball.  The aim of this program is to allow students to learn new skills and demonstrate them in an organised sport environment and to encourage children to develop and display good sportsmanship. 
 
 
Swimming
 
Through the generous fundraising efforts of our P&C Association, Middle Park is fortunate to have a 25 metre swimming pool on site.  Years 1 and 2 have swimming in Term 1. Prep and Years 3 to 6 have swimming in Term 4.   A fee is charged to students to cover the cost of the lessons which usually run for 8 or 9 weeks.
