Sport and Physical Education
At Haddon PS, we are able to provide a rich physical education program that takes advantage of our extensive space and resources including an indoor basketball court, tennis courts, and full size oval. Students are exposed to a wide range of sports and the school participates in a number of competitions both within and outside of school hours.
Sovereign Division Athletics Carnival
The next level of athletics competition, the Sovereign Division Athletics Carnival, will be held on the 13th of September at Llanberris Reserve. Selected students will be invited to compete at this carnival, based on their results at the Eyre District Athletics Carnival held earlier this year.
Grade 3/4 students are currently completing their swimming program on Monday afternoons at the Ballarat Aquatic Centre.
Grade 5/6 basketball is currently being offered as an after school activity for interested students. Games are held at the Ballarat Minerdome after school on Thursdays. Please see Mr McKay or Mr Jackson for further details.
