Knockout sport and gala days

Statewide Combined High Schools (CHS) Knockout Competitions 

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’.  

Each year West Wallsend High School enters teams into the main draws of various CHS knockout competitions. The nature of the sports is based on recent school history and current student interest and participation. We have a proud history of participation in many of these competitions and with our passionate and dedicated coaches, we look forward to continued participation and success in the future.

The list of knockout sports we have entered in 2024 can be seen below. Students interested in participating in knockout teams are encouraged to complete the online nomination forms and attend the appropriate trials.
