General Information

Grade Sport

Bligh S.S.S.A. provides students opportunities to participate in a range of sports in friendly inter-school competitions. Our competitions are used to promote maximum participation and good sportsmanship.

Participation is dependent on the number of students choosing the sport, trials, organisation from Bligh Zone and availability of supervising teachers.

There is a cost for this sport to cover the costs of travel to and from the venue.

Recreational Sport

Recreational activities throughout the year include:

  • Gym and Fitness
  • Gym Class
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Rock Climbing

These sports are delivered off-site although still supervised by our teachers. There is a cost for this sport to cover the costs of travel to and from the venue and entry.

House Sport

House sport provides students with the option to stay at school and play sport in non-competitive environment.

  • Basketball
  • Netball
  • Soccer
  • Oztag
  • Power Walking

School Carnivals

  • Swimming Carnival
  • Cross Country Carnival
  • Athletics Carnival

School Carnivals play a vital role in a child's growth, offering valuable lessons through individual or team participation. Children can learn important skills and values such as teamwork, sportsmanship, and perseverance by taking part in these sporting events.

Sports Carnivals offer not only physical benefits but also foster fellowship among participants. Being part of a house team allows students to earn points for their team and represent them by wearing house colours.

Students also have the opportunity to represent the school at the Bligh Zone Carnivals and the Sydney East Schools Sports Association (SESSSA) Championships if they excel in a particular event.

Code of Conduct

Codes of Behaviour provide a supportive framework which promotes fair play and appropriate behaviour in school sport. These codes apply to players, teachers, coaches, principals, parents, officials and spectators who together provide the environment in which school sport is played.

The following Codes apply to school sport at all levels and are designed to highlight:

  • the principles of enjoyment, satisfaction and safe play in sport.
  • that students participate for their own sake and not to fulfil the desires of parents, adult groups or peers.
  • the encouragement of student participation in sport and, in so doing, contribute to higher levels of health and physical fitness.
