Sports and physical activity

Physical activity in the school setting takes place in a variety of contexts and includes formal inter and intra-school competitive sport, physical education, formal and informal recreation activity, leisure and fitness activities and outdoor adventure sports.

Participation in a safe and non-threatening environment provides opportunities for students to enjoy the experience and excitement of physical activities, to develop skills, interact socially and achieve personal goals and ambitions. Participants who enjoy and are satisfied with their physical activity experience are more likely to repeat and continue their experience.

The Sports department at Dulwich High School of Visual Arts and Design deals with two elements:

School sport

Every Tuesday students partake in a sport of their choice. This gives them the opportunity to participate in either competitive or recreational activities. 

  • Summer Sport runs in Term 1 and Term 4 
  • Winter Sport runs through Terms 2 & 3.

It is important that the students choose their sports wisely as there is no changing of sports choices throughout the year.


There are three school sports carnivals throughout the year: 

  • Swimming carnival 
  • Cross Country carnival
  • Athletics carnival
