Weekly Sport for Years Kinder – Year 2
Students in Kindergarten – Year 2 are involved in a weekly sports program, conducted by staff and some specialist coaches.  In Term One, all students in Years 1-2 attend a weekly Swimming Program at Prairiewood Leisure Centre.   The lessons are ability-based and there is a fee that is involved for instruction, swimming cap and bus travel.  Sports days will vary depending on the timetable.   All sport lessons, except the Year 1 and 2 swim program, are covered by College fees.

Prep – Year 2 Tabloid Sports Carnival
Students in Prep – Year 2 will participate in a Tabloid Sports Carnival conducted at College.  The activities conducted are designed for fun, participation and enjoyment.  

Co-curricular Sport Option – Junior School
Students in Years 3 – 6 participate in the annual Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals.  Attendance is compulsory and students may earn a place in the Thomas Hassall team to represent the College at the New Anglican Schools Sports Association (NASSA) Carnivals and advance further down the representative pathway.

NASSA Gala days are conducted for students in Years 5 and 6 in the following sports:  basketball, football, girls netball, AFL, touch football and boys cricket.

Some sports have an individual nomination process at CIS level, such as softball, rugby union, hockey.  Students should notify the sports co-ordinator if they wish to trial for these sports.  Students may also be involved in other sport gala days as determined by the College.  We usually enter teams in TIGS Soccer Gals Day, SASC Netball Gala Day and the Cops and Kids League Day.
