Randwick has a proud tradition of successfully competing in Sydney Coastal PSSA. Our Summer teams are selected at the very start of the year, as the season often starts in Week 3. Randwick selects 4 girls cricket teams and 4 boys cricket teams; 4 girls and 4 boys OzTag teams; and 3 mixed basketball teams. They compete during Terms 1 and 4. Our Winter selections are held at the very end of Term 1, so they can start the first week back of Term 2 and continue till the end of Term 3. We have 4 girls netball teams; 4 mixed rugby league and union teams; 4 girls soccer teams and 6 boys soccer teams; and 2 mixed AFL teams.
Randwick provides a range of engaging sporting activities to Year 3-6 students. These activities are designed to build the skills and understandings required in all the PSSA sporting codes. The School Sport activities include: Cricket, Oztag, Soccer, AFL, TBall and Netball. They also include athletics training, dancing and acrobatics. Over four terms students will complete six sequential lessons in each sport offered.
Kindergarten, Year One and Year Two (K-2) participate in regular physical activity through creative play, dance, gymnastics, minor games and sports. K-2 learn a range of fundamental movement skills, including balance, vertical jump, sprint run, catch, hop, side gallop, skip, overhand throw, kick and two-handed strike. The sport sessions are run by classroom teachers and specialist staff.
Students in Year 2 also participate in weekly swimming lessons during Term 1.
