Looking after the physical
We know boys of all ages need space and opportunity to run and play to release some of their natural energy. We also know boys love to play games – both formal and informal. We meet these needs at lunch and break times by providing expansive grounds and playing fields for the boys to enjoy.
In addition every boy from the ELC to Year 10 has compulsory Health and Physical Education lessons as part of the core curriculum where they learn skills and how to play various games.
In the Junior Years all the boys participate in a tabloid sports day at the end of each term. In Years 5 and 6 the boys compete in a Wednesday afternoon sports competition against the other APS schools.
Saturday sport program
From Year 7 to Year 12 it is expected every boy will participate in the APS Saturday morning sports competition – and for many boys this is one of the highlights of attending a school like Brighton Grammar.
The APS (Associated Public Schools) is comprised of the following eleven schools. Brighton Grammar School, Carey Grammar, Caulfield Grammar School, The Geelong College, Geelong Grammar School, Haileybury College, Melbourne Grammar School, St. Kevin’s College, Scotch College, Wesley College and Xavier College.
We believe that participation in such a program teachers the boys so much more than how to play sport. It teaches them how to win and lose with dignity, how to contribute positively to a team, a sense of being beyond oneself and how effort and perseverance brings reward. We also believe that teaching boys how to play sport and maintain physical fitness is another important life skill.
There are two main seasons summer and winter where every student participates and an additional spring season for Athletics and Water Polo where only the students interested in those sports participate.
