St John Vianney offers a range of sporting opportunities to our students. We conduct our own school carnivals in swimming, cross-country and athletics. As part of the Lakes Region, talented sportspeople are offered opportunities to progress as far as state level through our representative pathway.
Development officers from a variety sports visit to expose our students to opportunities available in our community. These visits often combine with opportunities to compete in local competitions on the weekend or after school. The visits provide students with a taste of a wide range of sports and the basic skills involved in the competition.
Our weekly PE program incorporates professional coaches in gymnastics (Primarily Active), dancing (Dance Fever), and Smash Tennis. They incorporate activities to promote fundamental movement skills and domain-specific skills. We take great pride at St John Vianney in our balanced physical education program.
Our school is part of the Good for Kids framework that encourages the use of simple equipment and activities to keep students moving throughout the school day. Our spacious playground offers a huge oval for games such as soccer and tag at lunch and there is play equipment in our shade area.
