Inter-School Sports

There are two levels of sporting competition – Intra School House Competition and Interschool Sports Program.

This allows all students to take part in an active sports program whilst also allowing those of the highest skills and abilities to represent the College against the best from other schools.


Interschool Sports Program at Cedar Campus

Cedar Campus is a member of the School Sports Victoria (SSV) Coburg District sporting competition. As part of this competition the Year 4 to 6 students who excel at athletics and cross country are given the opportunity to represent the college against other schools in the Coburg District. Students who perform strongly on these carnival days are then provided with further opportunities to compete at regional and state levels.

As part of the SSV Coburg District competition the Year 6 students take part in a term two winter sports competition. This involves all Year 6 students electing to represent the college in one of the following sports:

  • Netball
  • Soccer
  • AFL

Students take part in a five-week fixtured competition. Teams that win their division are provided with opportunities to go on and compete at regional and state levels.
