Sport Program

macrob16 

The School offers a variety of sports throughout the year. In line with Department for Education policy, Adelaide High School regards sport as a natural extension of the Physical Education Curriculum.

The Sport Program reflects a commitment to equal opportunities for all students and is designed to be appropriate to the level of development of the participants. Year 8 students are provided with the opportunity to continue participating in the sports that they have competed in during Primary School and are also encouraged to try other sports that they are not familiar with.

The School participates in the Southern Zone Competition and SAAS (Sports Association for Adelaide Schools) competitions, with matches scheduled each week. AHS also participates in state wide Knockout Competitions which cover all sports. Announcements about the formation of teams and training times are made available in the Student Bulletin Notices.

The Interschool Athletics Carnival and Swimming Carnivals are features of the Term 1 Calendar and provide competitors with the opportunity to compete with other elite athletes.

The highlights of the sporting calendar each year are the Melbourne and MacRob Exchanges held in either Melbourne and Adelaide during August. Students compete in a number of sports and are selected for teams based on both their skill level and commitment. Also included in the sporting competition between the schools are Theatre Sports, Debating and Chess. The experience is certainly a memorable one for all participants and also provides the opportunity for students to create lifelong friendships with students from Melnbourne High School or MacRobertson Girls’ High School.
