Sport is a very important part of the curricular and co-curricular programs and our girls are encouraged to balance their academic efforts with sporting opportunities. The unique character and location of the campuses allow us to offer true diversity in this regard.
With an extensive range of sporting facilities, we are able to administer a large variety of activities. This provides ample opportunity for students to be involved in sport, improve their skills and maintain healthy fitness levels.
Through involvement in sport, the emphasis is always on co-operation, challenge, team spirit and simply having fun together.
Our Sporting Association – Girls Sport Victoria
Strathcona is a member of Girls Sport Victoria (GSV), one of the largest independent school sporting associations in Victoria. As one of the 24 participating schools, our Year 7 to 12 girls have the opportunity to be involved in more than 20 sports – in weekly sport competitions, carnivals, tournaments and skill development programs.
If you wish to find out more information regarding the GSV, please download the GSV Brochure.
Additional Sporting Opportunities
In addition to the GSV sports, girls have the opportunity to be involved in several other sports that are managed independently of GSV. In addition to aerobics, dance, equestrian and sailing, kayaking, canoeing and rowing are special opportunities that take place on the Yarra River, which flows past our Tay Creggan Year 9 campus in Hawthorn.
All girls are also actively encouraged to take part, not only in the inter-school competitions and skill development programs, but also in our inter-house sports.
