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.

Aquatics Camps

As a part of our Year 9/10 Curriculum requirements all students must attend a two day intensive aquatics camp in Term One. Students participate in a range of aquatic activities including Knee Boarding, Sailing, Kayaking, Wind Surfing and Snorkelling.

Nine A Side Football

The SANFL 9 a side carnival is held at CYS each year with a large number of schools from across the peninsula competing in the event. The carnival is for both male and female students in Years 8 and 9.

Secondary Knock out Competitions

Zone Knock out Carnivals are a great opportunity for all forms of Athletes from our most confident to our least to be exposed to a range of sports. The Zone carnivals are also used a platform for our Secondary Students to be selected in the Yorke Peninsula teams. Knock Out sports we are currently involved in include: Football, Netball, Basketball and Hockey.

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