Sports Overview

As a school we recognise that sporting opportunities provide our students with rich learning experiences. Participation in sport and physical activity by students and staff has positive benefits for the individual, the school and the community.

We strive for excellence in providing and supporting the best sporting opportunities and environments in which our students can participate, learn and grow. Positive sporting experiences and opportunities inspire on-going participation and an enjoyment of physical activity and sport for life.

The sporting opportunities at Campbells Bay School provide all students with a variety of sports to participate in, develop skills and achieve personal success. We are constantly working to do this in an environment that has a healthy balance between participation and competition. With all our sporting opportunities, winning is not our intended outcome. Participation for all, healthy habits for life and extending students with talents is our focus.

    Team selections for the teams in the junior school and the middle school (years three and four) are not trial based. They are mostly based on friendships and classmates. The emphasis is on participation and enjoyment. As students move into the senior school (years five and six), teams play in graded competitions and for most of these sports, trials are part of the selection process for teams. The year five and six teams are trialed where possible by neutral sporting code representatives.

  • Coaches & managers note
    The successful running of these sports teams at Campbells Bay School relies on parents to volunteer to help with the coaching and managing of teams. Each team will need a parent volunteer to coach the team and a parent volunteer to help manage the team. Please note that in accordance with the Vulnerable Children’s Act 2014, the Board of Trustees has adopted a procedure whereby that from the start of 2017 only adults (all persons 18 years of age and over) who have undertaken a police vet with acceptable results can be selected to manage/coach a school sport’s team. If you would like to volunteer to coach or manage a team, please go to the school website to ‘police vetting’ and complete the form as per the instructions. You will not be able to coach or manage a sports team if you have not completed this police vetting process.

Extra Sports

During the school year other interschool and zone day sporting opportunities arise. Sports like T-ball (junior softball) and rugby festival days are often on offer from the local sporting organisation. Decisions regarding these sorts of days are accessed and made on a yearly basis.

The school also encourages and provides opportunities for students to participate in big, community run sporting events. These events have a small element of competitiveness but the main focus is on participation, ‘giving it a go’ and the enjoyment of being involved in a physical and sporting activity. These are events like:

• Weetbix Kids Tryathlon

• Beach Series

• Shore to Shore Fun Run
