Sport

Sport is an important part of the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education program. All students take part in our school sports and P.E. programs. There are also opportunities to represent our school at inter-school sports competitions.

Waverley students participate in specialised program run by professional organisations in Gymnastics, Swimming, Dance and also we invite the Roosters and AFL to give lessons to the students in OzTag and AFL Kick.

Students, eight years and above, are encouraged to participate in annual school carnivals for cross country, athletics and swimming.

Every child and staff member belongs to one of the three sport houses. The sport houses are as follows:
