Sports and physical activity

Sport and physical activity is a valued and accepted part of our school's curriculum, contributing to the development of the whole child. It provides a vehicle for social, physical, emotional and moral learning and is an important expression of our culture.

The participation, enjoyment and skill development of our students is the corner-stone of the school sport/ physical activity program. All our students take part in this program.

There are also opportunities to represent our school at inter-school sports competitions. As a NSW public school we benefit from the opportunities for shared activities and competitions with other schools, coordinated by school sport associations. See the school sport unit website for details.

Grade sport

This year promises to be an exciting one for sport at Marsden High School. Once again we will be continuing with our house sport competition for Years 7,8 & 9. This competition proved to be a huge success in previous years. Marsden HS has once again entered the Northern Suburbs Grade Sport competition. Matches will take place on Tuesday afternoons and be available for students from Years 10, 11 and 12.

Talented sports program

The Talented Sports Program (TSP) is an extra curricular opportunity for students who would like to combine excellence in sport with their academic studies. The program is designed to improve both academic and sports performance of students.

Students in this program will regularly train under the supervision of their school coaches and professional coaches from appropriate sporting organistions at regular intervals. Part of the program will also involve the development of a PLP or a perosnal learning plan that will be developed in consultation with Learning Suppoprt staff. 

Integrated sport

At Marsden High School, all students are provided the opportunity to participate in a weekly Integrated Sport Program. Each year group is allocated a two hour block in which they compete in an organised house competition.

Students are divided into four house groups known as Bradman, Cuthbert, Konrad and Young. Matches are refereed by the PDHPE staff. A variety of sports are included in the program. These include cricket, teeball, netball, volleyball, basketball, touch football, oztag, soccer, futsal, hockey, badminton, table tennis, AFL, gaelic football and Flag Gridiron.

Marsden's Integrated Sport Program is a wonderful way for students to learn the value of team work, fitness, exercise, health, respect, fair play and socialisation.
