Every pupil that comes to the school is encouraged to be involved in sport, as sport forms one of the four ‘A’s – Athleticism.
In our Growing Good Men Program, we believe that sport provides development challenges like no other learning domain and contributes to a truly holistic development experience. Sport at St Margaret's Berwick Grammar is played in the week, leaving the weekend free for students to follow other passions.
Opportunities to engage all our students
The school is part of the Southern Independent Schools (SIS) sports and seeks to provide opportunities to engage everyone through a diverse, multi-sport experience at all ages across all abilities. Whether the sport is played by an aspiring professional or for a social and recreational purpose, we recognise the significant mental and physical benefits that come with regular play and competition. Equally, we recognise the development of fundamental behaviours that emerge by participating and competing in sport, that help young people achieve excellence regardless of where their path may take them beyond St Margaret’s Berwick Grammar.
Extensive and diverse facilities
Our extensive and diverse facilities which include a curated oval with has same dimensions as the MCG and our new sports performance centre, along with our blend of coaches and teacher-coaches enable us to provide a program of sport in training and competition, alongside education and other co-curricular activities.
Our sports program and membership of SIS offers the opportunity for students to engage and sample multiple sports through training and competitive fixtures during the early development years. Sports activities at the school occur on a weekday, leaving families to enjoy weekends together or for students to participate in club sports during this time.
