Sacred Heart College is a member of School Sports Victoria, through which we organise our Interschool Sports program. School Sports Victoria has three levels of competition. For us, the first of these is the Mickleham Division, which consists of Kyneton Secondary College, Craigieburn Secondary College, Wallan Secondary College, Mt Ridley College (Craigieburn) and Hume Anglican Grammar.
If a team or an individual is successful at this level, they can progress to the Northern Metropolitan Region. Likewise, if a team or individual is successful here, they are eligible to compete at the State Championships.
School Sports Victoria offers a range of sports. The sports that we have chosen to compete in are those which are taught in the Physical Education curriculum, and those which are popular in the Macedon Ranges. These sports are:
Australian Rules Football
For sports such as athletics, cross country, orienteering and swimming, the College enters a team, with all competitors competing on the same day. For the remainder of the above sports there are four separate competitions for Year 7; Year 8; Intermediate (Years 9 & 10); and Senior (Years 11 & 12). All sports are offered to both boys and girls.
There is an opportunity for students to enter as an individual in other sports offered by School Sports Victoria. To enter these other sports the student must have a high level of ability and standard.
