Kerang Christian College believes that school sport is an integral part of students’ overall development, having the potential to impact on the physical, social, emotional and mental health of students.
Timetabled Sport and Physical Education is part of the school curriculum and is set up for development, practice and mastery of skills whilst maintaining the main aims of the sports program.
Students in the Primary School have an opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sporting programs throughout the academic school year.
Students in Prep – Year 6 participate in Learn to Swim lessons during Term 1 each year. This program provides a broad, balanced program of swimming, water safety and survival skills in preparation for a lifetime of safe activity in, on or near the water.
Our College participates in the Athletics, Cross Country and Swimming competitions against other local rural schools. Students have an opportunity to qualify for Zone, Regional and State level championships in these sports.
The Year 4 – 6 students also participate in the Lightning Premiership competition in Kerang each year at Riverside Park. The sports offered are Football, Netball and T-Ball. Students competed in a round robin format against a number of local schools in the region.
Our school has a rich tradition in hockey with the school regularly fielding players in the Kerang Rural Hockey 7’s team. This team has qualified for the School Sport Victoria (SSV) State Hockey Finals most recently in 2012 and 2013.
Students participate in a wide range of clinics hosted by local sporting organisations. During the past year students have participated in organised clinics for hockey, athletics, basketball, badminton and football.
Students from Year 7 to Year 11 are encouraged to participate in a wide range of sporting activities that compliment the school based Physical Education program. Students are provided with the opportunity to participate and develop an understanding of the skills, concepts and rules in a wide range of sports.
Kerang Christian College is aligned with two key sporting bodies; the Christian Schools Sports Network (CSSN) and the Western Christian Schools Sports Association (WCSSA). The aim of these sporting networks is to promote friendship, goodwill and a spirit of sportsmanship and comradeship, together with healthy competition. These inter-school competitions cover a wide range of seasonal sports including: Netball, Volleyball, Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, Cricket and Softball. Annually, all students are challenged to compete in the CSSN Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics carnivals.
A future goal is to have students participate in House sporting competitions combined with many opportunities for our talented young sports men and women to compete at Regional, State and National level.
