Education has a much broader application than what happens in the classroom. Therefore Physical Education and sportsmanship are an integral part of the curriculum. Our HPE (Health and Physical Education) covers health issues, physical skill development and fitness assessments. Physical education and sports programs encourage the students to engage in interpersonal relationships, healthy living, and important interactive skills. Our Carlisle Adventist College students have the opportunity to engage in individual and team sports, both on and off campus. Some of the sporting options include swimming, athletics, netball, gymnastics, oztag, basketball and more.
Carlisle’s ‘sports house’ system provides plenty of opportunity for healthy competition at athletics, cross-country and swimming carnivals. Our students are allocated to one of two houses, Green and Gold, and encouraged to participate in intra-school sporting competitions held throughout the year.
The College engages in three carnivals:
- Cross country (colour run)
For students wishing to push their athleticism further, they will have an opportunity if selected to progress to Cumberland or Mackay trials, and then, if successful at those trials, to state or possibly national competitions.
