Northholm encourages students to participate actively in a broad range of sports as we believe students learn a great deal about themselves through the physical and mental challenges of individual and team sports. The inclusive nature of our sports program promotes a positive attitude towards health and fitness and a love of physical activity for its own sake.
There are many opportunities for students to engage in healthy competition and the school has enjoyed a long tradition of sporting success. Northholm has been represented at state and national levels in a range of school sports including athletics, cricket, cross country, diving, equestrian, go-karting, football, rugby union, swimming, taekwondo and triathlon.
Students are also able to pursue their own particular sporting interests through local club sports as the school does not require them to participate in a Saturday sports program. Many of our students excel in these chosen sports with some going on to participate at International level.
Students have opportunities to develop skills in a range of appropriate sports as part of the in-school sports program. They also participate in sports carnivals for athletics, cross country and swimming at both school and representative levels wherever age permits.
They can also participate in some after school sports competitions. These change according to interest of our students.
Students are actively encouraged to participate in an extensive sports program that includes annual carnivals in athletics, cross country and swimming at both school and representative levels.
They are also able to represent Northholm in any of the team sports offered as part of the after school sports competitions. While these may change according to the interests of our students, we have traditionally participated in basketball (summer and winter), cricket, football, futsal, hockey, indoor cricket, netball, rugby union, softball, swimming, tennis, touch football, triathlon and volleyball. Additionally, students can compete in equestrian, mountain bike riding and snowsports.
