All classes participate in physical activities on a weekly basis. Engaging in physical activities contributes to wellbeing and good health. Our focus is on the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Children are also given opportunities to compete in a variety of different sports in the Victorian School Sports Association at a local, regional and state level.

Each year a whole school Athletics Carnival is held.  All students participate in different track and field events, adapted to their age level.  Those children in grades three to six who achieve first and second places in each event, then progress to District School Sports, and continue to Regional and State School Sports if they continue to be awarded first or second places.

Students in Grades 3 to 6 participate in four weeks of tennis lessons with a visiting coach.

As part of our Lunchtime Links activities, students can also attend swimming lessons on a term basis. Qualified instructors at the Morwell Leisure Centre run this program each Tuesday.

The school also enters in netball, basketball, football, soccer, cricket and cross country competitions.
