Sport at Balmacewen is highly valued and remains vital to our students' experience throughout their time at school. We have an equal approach and see the benefit in sport that caters for both the competitor and the social sportsmen and sportswomen.

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 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 1 and lead their House Groups in annual school sporting events as well as at House Sport.
