Sport is part of the foundation of our school. We encourage all of our students to develop a love for being active, helping to create a sense of wellbeing and working to create strong, healthy bodies and minds.
Our junior students enjoy all the facilities of our senior boarding school for girls, which includes access to specialist coaches and mentoring from older students; fostering inspiring relationships between pupils across the year groups and encouraging success.
All students participate in weekly sport as part of the curriculum, enjoying a wide range of activities including swimming in summer, and gymnastics in the cooler months at local sporting facilities.
A range of team sports are available to all students, with NEGS teams featuring strongly in the local netball, hockey and other local competitions.
Our Junior School students are given the chance to compete at several levels, including events held by the Independent Primary School Heads of Australia (IPSHA) and within the Primary School Sporting Association (PSSA). Here our boys and girls participate competitively in athletics, swimming and cross country. We also hold our own swimming and athletics carnival with a strong emphasis placed on inclusivity and having a go – all factors that set strong foundations for proactive and positive young people.
