Sport

Students from Foundation to Year 6 participate in a range of sports at school in class or cluster groups. Our annual Sports Day is always a highly popular and enjoyable day on our school calendar!

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.

SACSA and SAPSASA

Golden Grove Lutheran Primary School competes in the South Australian Christian Schools Association (SACSA) competition, along with 34 other member schools. We are also members of SAPSASA and access many sporting opportunities for students through that pathway as well. 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
  • Basketball
  • Cross Country
  • Football
  • Netball
  • Soccer
  • Swimming
  • Table Tennis
  • Touch Football
  • Volleyball
