‘A sound mind in a sound body’ is a saying that dates from Roman times. The fact it’s still in use proves there’s much truth to it.
At Tintern Grammar, we recognise the value of sport as a vital part of a balanced education and offer a wide range of sports, with first-class facilities on campus.
Participation, teamwork, healthy competition, striving to improve on a personal best and developing leadership skills are all benefits offered by sport.
Students can take part in mixed sporting activities, whilst some are gender-specific.
Whatever their own interest and level of fitness, we encourage students to participate and seek to push their boundaries. By doing so they can learn the important lessons derived from achieving personal goals.
Tintern Grammar holds annual Inter-School House sports. The School is a member of EISM (Eastern Independent Schools of Melbourne) and students are able to compete in sporting carnivals, as well as mid-week competitive sport.
Importantly, competitive sports are scheduled to take place during the school week, so students are able to keep weekends free for family, friends, club-based sport and other personal pursuits.
A routine of maintaining health and fitness, with regular exercise is something students can take with them and will be of great benefit, well after their school years.
