Swimming Lessons

R-6 students have a comprehensive program taught by accredited instructors in the school swimming pool. Lessons each year lead to the annual Splash Carnival.

Sports Day (R-12)

Here at Central Yorke School we take pride in our holistic approach to Sports Day where all students from Reception to Year 12 compete together in a range of Athletic events to win the prestigious Barry Koch House Cup. Sportsmanship and team spirit is recognised with the Ali Adams Cup.

Interschool Athletic Carnivals

Sports Day is used as a platform to select students who win their events to compete in either the SYP Primary Interschool or the YP Secondary Athletics Carnival. Students who win their events at the Interschool events are then invited to compete at Mile End for both the YP Secondary Athletics team and the SAPSASA SYP Athletics team.

It is a practical/theory based course that looks at a number of sustainable environmental practices and explores outdoor adventures.
