Mitcham Girls High School

Sport

Sporting activities and fitness are encouraged at Mitcham Girls High School. We are proud of the high level of participation and achievement in sport.

The following sports are available in a range of activity environments: running, swimming, fitness, tennis, volleyball, netball, badminton, soccer, basketball and skiing.

Physical activity is also encouraged through such activities as the Dance program, team sports and lunch time programs.

The school gymnasium is used for a variety of sports within the Physical Education Program, for intra-school and inter-school sport and for use by the local community. 

All students participate in the annual Swimming Carnival and Sports Day.  Both days offer fun activities as well competition events.

Mitcham Girls High School has a half-Olympic sized swimming pool.  During Terms 1 and 4, the pool is open, and supervised, at lunchtimes for students to swim.  However, parents/caregivers will need to complete and sign a swimming consent form before their daughter will be allowed in the pool. Swimming Consent forms can be collected from the PE office or downloaded from the link below.

Swimming Consent Form

Over the year, Mitcham Girls High School enters many teams in the Southern Zone After School Sport Competition.  In this competition, our girls play against girls from other schools in Southern Adelaide.  The matches are held after school weekly from 3:30-4:30pm, on a home and away basis.  Students are transported to away venues but must make their own arrangements for getting home. Practices are held at lunchtimes, or sometimes after school, and each team is supported by a teacher/coach.

To nominate for a sport students must attend a meeting at recess time at the beginning of each term to receive information about their selected sport/s.  All meetings are advertised in the Student Bulletin.

Teams are only able to run if we get enough students interested, have a staff coach/manager for each team and there are other schools in our zone who also have teams to enter the competition.

Once a team is entered in the Southern Zone Sports Competition students will have team meetings to organise practice sessions and receive consent forms, programs, etc.

Students must listen to daily notices in the Student Bulletin to find out about meeting and practice times.  All meetings and practices are compulsory.

Any questions please contact the school on 8272 8233.
