Sports

The West Wallsend High School sports program caters to students who wish to compete at a highly competitive level all the way to those who wish to participate at a recreational level. The PDHPE faculty and school ensure that all students receive the necessary support to reach their own personal goals.

Facilities

Our vast open spaces and excellent sporting facilities provide students with onsite opportunities to pursue their sporting interests. The basketball courts, cricket nets and oval, are available for students’ recreational use at recess and lunch. Facilities include:

  • basketball courts
  • cricket nets
  • oval
  • MPC/ hall.

Knockout sport

Knockout sport involves our students competing against other schools either at our home ground or theirs. If the school wins, we continue to the next game; if we lose, we are out of the competition, hence the term ‘knockout sport’.  Sports such as rugby league, touch football, netball and football are included in this competition.

School sport

Students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of school-based sports and non-school based sports such as ten pin bowling and trampolining.

Carnivals

The PDHPE department also organises three carnivals every year - Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics. If the students perform well, they can represent the school at the Zone, Regional and even the State level. This is another great opportunity for those students who wish to pursue their strengths or passions and compete against other schools.

Whichever choice our students make regarding their sport, the emphasis is always on participation and doing one’s best. Physical activity is an important component of a student’s life and West Wallsend High School offers all students the opportunity to participate in the activity they enjoy the most.
