Students at St Leonards Primary School have the option to participate in a variety of sports. We have a committed group of parent volunteers that facilitate a wide range of out of school hours sports. These include Soccer, Netball, Tee Ball and Spike Zone Volleyball. 

We are always interested in starting up new sports teams, so if you are interested in coaching one of the above sports, or have another sport you would like to get started, please contact the school. All coaches require a current DCSI clearance before undertaking any work within the school. Please contact the Office if you require further information. 

Sports Curriculum

At St Leonards, all children participate in a specialist Physical Education Program. Each class receives one or two forty minute lessons a week (depending on their year level). From Reception to Year 2, we focus on the development of Fundamental Movement Skills, which are a range of gross motor movements that allow us to participate in a range of sports and leisure activities more successfully.

Sports participation includes swimming lessons for Reception - Year 5 students and a whole school Sports Day in Term 4. Out of school hours sports include T Ball (Term 1 and Term 4 at the Glenelg Baseball Club), Soccer (Term 2 and Term 3), Netball (Term 2 and Term 3) and Volleyball (held at Brighton Secondary School, Term 1-4). Students in Years 4-7 can participate in SAPSASA Athletics, Cross Country, Basketball, Soccer, Hockey, Tennis, Football, Netball,  Beach Volleyball, Lacrosse etc.
