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 range 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 compete in a round robin format against a number of local schools in the region.
Our students also participate in various clinics that are generally offered by local sporting organisations. Previously, students have participated in hockey, athletics, basketball, badminton and football clinics.
Students from Year 7 to Year 12 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 (CSEN) 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 CSEN Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics carnivals.
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. These House Sporting Competitions foster P-12 mentoring relationships among students and is one of the best outcomes of being a P-12 College.
