SPORT

Sport is an integral part of the educational program at Woodcroft College, designed to enhance curriculum learning outcomes for students. The College will endeavour to form links within the sporting community to provide a range of quality opportunities for all students.

Junior School

Our Junior School sport program is designed to develop skills, knowledge and attitudes for a lifelong participation in physical activity. The program celebrates the successes with an emphasis on improvement, engagement and team building.

The program is child centred and developmentally appropriate for students in the early years of schooling, fostering their natural instincts to play. As students move through the program, they can participate in inter-school competitions. This stage encourages and focuses on commitment to great sporting attitudes outside the school setting.

The Junior School Sports Program is not about a great save on the goal line or a three point shot to win the game. It’s about our team stopping play to check on an opposition player who has been accidently knocked over. That is what grows from the seeds we plant throughout our program.

Middle and Senior School

The aim of the Middle and Senior School sports program is to encourage all students to develop their interests and talents to the fullest.

The College seeks to offer the broadest range of activities possible. All students are encouraged to take up activities that challenge, interest and excite them during their time at the College. This experience can be rewarding and is an opportunity for students to develop new friendships, healthy attitudes and promote lifelong learning benefits.

The Middle and Senior School is part of the Girls Schools Sporting Association (IGSSA), Sport Association for Adelaide Schools (SAAS) and the Secondary School Sports South Australia (SSSSA) competitions.

The sports program at Woodcroft has provided me with a great opportunity to compete and lead. – Lachlan
