Sport & Clubs

Students from Foundation to Year 6 participate in a range of sports at school in class or cluster groups.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in additional during and after-school sport programs and to represent the school in external competitions including soccer, netball, AFL, touch football, basketball, lacrosse, tennis, swimming, athletics, cross country and many more!

Over the years, many of our students have progressed through to zone and state level representation and higher.

Sports Day

Get ready to cheer on your favorite teams and athletes at the Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School Sports Day! It’s a day filled with excitement, friendly competition, and plenty of fun activities for students, families, and friends.

Our sports day features a wide range of events and competitions for students of all ages and abilities. From traditional track and field events like sprints and long jumps to team relays and novelty races, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

But sports day isn’t just about winning medals—it’s also about fostering teamwork, sportsmanship, and healthy competition. Students have the opportunity to showcase their skills, challenge themselves, and support their classmates in a positive and encouraging environment.

And it’s not just about the students! Families and friends are invited to join in the festivities, whether they’re cheering from the sidelines or participating in parent and community events.

So mark your calendars, gather your team colors, and get ready for a day of excitement and camaraderie at the Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School Sports Day!

 

SACSA and SAPSASA

Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School competes in the South Australian Christian Schools Association (SACSA) competition, along with 34 other member schools.

SACSA and SAPSASA often compliment the teaching provided during PE lessons and provides students with an opportunity to compete at an elite level.

There are a range of Sports Gala Days each year. Students from Year 3 upwards can nominate to be selected for a team, attend trials, and training if selected. Students enjoy representing the school alongside their peers as they compete in each carnival against other Christian schools.

Sports include:

  • Athletics
