Road running

The road runners make up the backbone of the Athletics squad that goes to Camps Bay every year.  Many of our runners participate in the local club races on weekends.  The road running squad trains throughout the year.

Running is a lifestyle sport which can be enjoyed for many years after school. Pupils are encouraged to develop a love for running.

Facilities:  We have a wonderful suburb that we run around regularly and the availability of the Natural Heritage Site provides off-road experience.

Swimming

unfortunately we no longer offer swimming due to the drought

Under the supervision of Miss Goncalves plenty of fitness training and swimming experience has honed our swimming squad into a disciplined team of boys and girls that are a credit to our school's image.

All swimmers are expected to practice on both Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Galas are on Thursdays at various schools across the peninsula.

Swimmers who are involved in more than one sport at the school must bring a letter from the teacher in charge of their second sport if they cannot make swimming training on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Swimmers who are unable to attend one day of swimming training because of sport outside the school must bring a letter from their parents to confirm this.

Facilities:  Training takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons at Goodwood pool. The bus leaves school at 3pm promptly. Training ends at 4:30pm and the squad will return to the school by 5pm at the latest.
