Sport and physical activity is a valued and accepted part of our school's curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child. It provides a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning and is an important expression of our culture.
The participation, enjoyment and skill development of our students is the corner-stone of the school sport/ physical activity program. All our students take part in this program.
There are also opportunities to represent our school at inter-school sports competitions. As a NSW public school we benefit from the opportunities for shared activities and competitions with other schools, coordinated by school sport associations. See the School Sport Unit website for details.
Sport is compulsory and participation at some level is expected of every student in Years 7 to 11. If there is any physical disability that prevents participation, a medical certificate should be sent to the Sports Organiser. Students unable to participate in Sport remain at school and are supervised in private study during the sports afternoon.
In Years 7-12 students are given a choice of participating in Competition or Recreational Sport. Sport is played on Thursday afternoons from 12.50pm - 2.35pm.
COMPETITION SPORT is played against schools in the Illawarra Zone (Warilla HS, Oak Flats HS, Kanahooka HS, Dapto HS and Warrawong HS). Students participating in Competition Sport have to meet the cost of bus transport (approx $6 per week) to the venues. Sports offered include: Basketball, Volley ball, Touch, Soccer and Netball.
RECREATIONAL SPORT is an alternative for students who do not wish to participate in the traditional team sports. They are arranged for venues outside the school and include activities such as: Cycling, Weight Training, Surfing and Lifesaving, Oz-Tag, Skate Boarding, Soccer, Tennis, Contours, Walking, Gymnastics, Table tennis, Indoor Soccer, Ten Pin Bowling and Lawn Bowls. The cost of these activities varies from activity to activity and must be paid for by the students. Some activities are run at local venues and require no cost.
In addition to this, Albion Park High School also enters teams in various CHS knockout competitions, conducted on a state-wide basis, and involves a variety of team sports.
Three school carnivals are held each year - Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics. Students who perform well at these carnivals are then selected to represent the school at Zone, Regional and State level carnivals.
Zone and Regional Trials are also held so that talented individuals can gain selection in representative teams. Sports include: Rugby League, Rugby Union, Soccer, Hockey, Tennis, Golf, Squash, Australian Rules, Triathlon, Netball, Volleyball, Basketball, Diving, Gymnastics, Trampolining, Baseball, Softball and Cricket. Any student with expertise and experience in any of these areas is encouraged to attend the trials for further recognition in Sport. It should be noted, however, that most of these trials are for 'Open' teams ie.12-17 years so gaining selection can be a difficult process for younger students.
Early Leavers Pass
Students who require an Early Leavers Pass (Gate Pass) on a Thursday need to present themselves to the Head Teacher of Administration, in the office area, before school commences on the day. Students require a note from parents explaining the issue, and a medical card for any appointment they may have that afternoon.
If students require this pass for anything other than a medical appointment, the Head Teacher or Sports Organiser will, on most occasions make contact with parents.
Please write the students name, roll class and the date on any correspondence to the school as well as a phone number.
