Inspiring healthy, confident and loving followers of Jesus
Personal Development, Health and Physical Education (PDHPE) contributes greatly to the overall wellbeing of students. It impacts on cognitive, social, emotional, physical and spiritual growth. Developing the whole person involves the full range of skills acquired and refined through movement in a variety of contexts.
Our Sport program is concerned with the growth of the whole person. It provides biblically focused, engaging and rigorous practical experiences for students to practise maintaining a healthy and active life; hone individual skills; as well as develop godly, servant-hearted attitudes towards others.
Our goal is to provide all students with a safe, supportive and enjoyable environment that promotes faithful and joyous participation in physical activity and competition.
Kuyper has a wide range of on-site facilities to support the delivery of our sport programs, including,
Carnivals at Kuyper are whole-school, community events involving all students from Kindergarten to Year 12, as well as staff and parents. They promote the enjoyment of participation, the excitement of team spirit and the challenge of competition. Students performing well in individual events have the opportunity to represent the School at Zone, State and National levels.
There are three annual carnivals: Swimming, Athletics and Cross-Country.
