Balmacewen has made Health and Physical Education a focus area. We understand that when children are fit, healthy and have a high self esteem, they become better learners. We also recognise that there are many intangible qualities within sport which can't be taught, like team work, comradary and how to deal with winning and losing. Balmacewen offers a wide range of sports with skilled and dedicated coaches.
Balmacewen also has a weekly House Sport competition. Each House Group competes against other houses to gain points for the Clarke Cup. Year 8 students are selected as House Captains and Deputy House Captains at the beginning of Term 2 and lead their House Groups in annual school sporting events as well as at House Sport.
Annual sporting events at Balmacewen:
Summer Exchange with Southland Boys and Southland Girls (boys and girls touch, boys and girls waterpolo, boys cricket, tennis)
Winter Exchange with Southland Boys and Southland Girls (girls netball, girls and boys basketball, girls and boys hockey, boys football and boys rugby)
Winter Exchange with John McGlashan and Columba College (girls netball, girls and boys basketball, girls and boys hockey, boys football and boys rugby)
