Sport plays an important role in developing well-rounded young people. We have a range of House Carnivals and participate with other schools in the Eastern Independent Schools in Melbourne weekly interschool sports. In addition, our ‘Friends of Groups’ program extends sport into elite and further co-curricular areas, such as: kayaking, hockey, aerobics, tennis, snow skiing and more.
Our sporting facilities are vast and varied, and include: a large Sports Centre with 25 metre indoor swimming pool, basketball stadium, gymnasium, dance studio, change rooms and cafeteria.
Young people also have the opportunity to engage in community sport outside of the college. ELTHAM is supportive of fostering outside sporting networks, and as such, does not schedule Saturday sports.
Our list of successful Sports Champions of national and International acclaim is impressive.
