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.

Sports Day:  Friday 22 March (program)

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.

Zone Sport

Over the year, Mitcham Girls High School enters many teams in the Southern Zone After School Sport Competition.  In this competition, our students 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 lunch times and each team is supported by a teacher/coach.

The following sports are generally offered:

Term 1   Week 4 - Week 10                Term 2/3   Week 4 (T2) - Week 4 (T3)            Term 3/4   Week 7 (T3) - Week 6 (T4)

Nominations for these sports are generally open at the beginning of each term.  To nominate for a sport, students must sign-up to their choice of sport/s and attend a meeting at recess time at the beginning of each term to receive information about their selected sport/s.  All information regarding sign-up, meetings and trainings are advertised in the Student Bulletin.

Teams are only able to run if enough students sign-up and there are other schools in our zone who also have teams to enter the competition. Training will take place throughout the week with all students expected to attend these training sessions.

A fee of $60 is charged to students playing in the Zone Sport Competition which is to be paid before the commencement of the competition.  This fee covers the cost of the school entering the team, transport, equipment and venue hire.

Other Sports

In addition to the After School Zone Sport competitions, students are given the opportunity to play in School Sport SA Knockout Competitions, Carnivals and other competitions.

Carnivals run by the Southern Zone Sports Association are a fun way for students to develop their skills in a range of sports including Touch, AFL, Softball, Rugby, Volleyball, Badminton and Soccer. These are held throughout the year and are open to all interested students.

A large range of Knockout Competitions are also offered with the best team selected for these competitions.  The sports offered through the Knockout Competitions are virtually limitless with the overall goal to become SA State Champions.

Transport is provided to and from these events and participants are required to make a small monetary contribution to cover the costs associated with transport and team entries.

Year 7 Intake

The Department for Education has short-listed Mitcham Girls High School as a potential pilot school to ‘Lead the Way’ and offer Year 7 in a high school setting from 2020. We have been shortlisted because of our focus in progressive approaches to quality teaching and learning, our safe and supportive environment and our extensive transition program. Participation in the pilot is voluntary, therefore whether the pilot program goes ahead is dependent on the number of parents who register an interest for their current Year 6 children to enrol at Mitcham Girls High School in 2020. Registrations of Interest to Enrol close on 24 May 2019.
