Mitcham Primary School offers a wide range of sports and activities for students from Year 2 to Year 6. We encourage your child/children to get involved. Through sport, children develop skills in their chosen game whilst having fun, developing confidence and widening their social experiences. Children participate in programs and competitions that suit their age, ability and maturity level.
We offer the following sports:
· Australian Rules Football: Terms 2 and 3
· Cricket: Terms 1 and 4
· Basketball: Terms 2 and 3
· Netball: Terms 2 and 3
· Soccer: Terms 2 and 3
· Chess: Terms 1, 2, 3 and 4
· Touch Football: Terms 1 and 4
Our sports program relies on parent participation. Teams are coached/managed by parents of the students. Those who volunteer their time so our students can develop their skills and most importantly, their enjoyment of the sport.
Each of the coaches/volunteers require a current Working With Children Check (WWCC), a certificate of participation for Responding to Abuse and Neglect Education and Care (RAN-EC) and have completed a Volunteer Induction session which is offered online through the Dept for Ed website.
