Prep School Sport

Besides the 'active body, active mind' component, there are skills to be learned and the social benefit of being part of a team. For that reason, being a member of sporting teams is compulsory for all students from Years 3 to 6 and are required to attend at least one weekday training and Saturday sport each week throughout term.

Our Year 2 students have the option of being part of our winter sporting teams and traditionally approximately 85% of students choose to be involved.

Senior School Sport

Year after year, and in a range of different sports across and age groups, Kinross Wolaroi School students relish the opportunity to be involved in a highly structured program that caters for individual and team pursuits with many going on to achieve state or national representation in their chosen fields of endeavour.

Regardless of their experience or performance level, our students have the opportunity to participate, to challenge themselves physically and to achieve their personal bests.

Inter-house competitions are conducted throughout the year to develop team spirit and encourage exciting participation.
