Over 800 students each year represent our College at Inter School Sport and whilst success is enthusiastically pursued by the students and teams, this is a by-product of our main goals within the sporting program – developing leadership, resilience and character.

The main sporting competition the College competes in is School Sport Victoria, which consists of three sections – Goulburn Murray District (local area Inter School Sport); Hume Region (area from Shepparton to Wodonga where competitors and teams progress to if they win at the GMD carnivals); State Championships (if competitors/teams win at the Hume Carnival).

We also compete in various other competitions, including the Marist Basketball, Netball and Cricket Carnivals, as well as the Herald/Sun Senior Football and Netball Victoria competitions.

Each year we enter sports teams in the following:

Baseball (Boys), Softball (Girls), Clay Target Shooting. Cricket, Golf, Lawn Bowls, Squash, Table Tennis, Tennis, Ten Pin Bowling, Volleyball, Chess, Badminton, Basketball, Football, Hockey, Netball and Soccer.

Outdoor Education

At Notre Dame College, students are able to study Outdoor Education in Year 9, as an accelerated VCE subject in Year 10 and a finishing VCE subject in Year 11.

VCE Outdoor and Environmental Studies develops students’ understanding of outdoor environments and the ways in which humans interact with, relate to and have impacted outdoor environments over time. ‘Outdoor environments’ encompass landscapes, both local and further afield, that range in health from protected wilderness to those heavily impacted by human practices. Students explore and gain a deeper understanding of their surroundings as they learn through planning and participating in outdoor experiences and reflecting on their involvement.

Outdoor and Environmental Studies offers students a range of pathways including further formal study in areas such as natural resource management, nature-based tourism, outdoor leading and guiding, environmental research and policy, education, and agriculture.
