Sporting Competitions and Carnivals
One of the goals of the School is to provide all students with the opportunity to participate in sport, have some fun, be active, develop their sporting skills whatever their previous experience and partake in some success.
The School is also focused on providing students with pathways that supports their achievement of excellence in their chosen sport(s), recognising that through participation in quality sports experiences, students can develop personal skills related to commitment, determination, perseverance, support, encouragement and resilience. Participation in a Frederick Irwin Anglican School team demands exemplary conduct and sportsmanship.
Participation in sport provides life skills beyond the enjoyment of the sport itself, including teamwork and developing healthy and active lifestyle habits which we hope will endure.
Frederick Irwin Anglican School maintains a strong commitment to providing the opportunity for students to represent their school and participate in sport in both local competitions and Inter-School competitions.
The Inter-School competitions include ACC (Associated Catholic Colleges) – Swimming , Cross Country , Athletics. We also participate in sports competitions offered by SSWA ( School Sport Western Australia)
Additional to this wide range of sports are available to students:
- Water Polo
The School provides opportunities for all students to engage in sports carnivals through the House system, with Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country being the ‘Big 3’. Here both participation and excellence in performance are valued and encouraged.
