School sport is a compulsory subject for students in years 7 – 10. During School Sport, students participate in planned moderate activity with some vigorous physical activity across the school week. This time includes planned weekly sport, which occurs twice in a timetable cycle (140 minutes). School sport differs to Practical PDHPE in that it is aimed at improving student’s engagement in weekly structured physical activity and does not include assessable outcomes.
Students complete school sport in their designated house groups which remain the same from year 7-10. These houses are Bara, Gawura, Daringyan and Guruwin. Sport captains are elected from each sport group. Students are awarded Most Valuable Player each Sport session for effort, sportsmanship and skill. Sport groups compete each week to gain points for their team. Finals are held each term. An overall winning team for each cohort is awarded at the School Sports Assembly.
Sports include a range of mainstream sports such as touch, soccer, basketball as well as modified sports to suit varying abilities and promote participation, such as capture the flag, long ball and golden child.
Participation in the School Athletics and Swimming Carnivals is highly encouraged for all students at Ulladulla High School.
