Sport

Physical education is woven into the fabric of Frensham Junior School. We believe it’s crucial to the lives and healthy development of students.

The majority of students represent the school in at least one sport and many compete in a number each year – at local, state and national levels.

Frensham Junior School teams enter Southern Highlands local competitions for:

  • Cricket and Master Blaster
  • Basketball
  • Netball and Netta
  • Soccer
  • Hockey
  • Water Polo
  • Tennis Round Robin competition.

The School also competes in the IPSHA Carnivals for Swimming, Cross country, Athletics and Gymnastics. Many students go on to represent the School at CIS and All Schools Carnivals.

Winter Sports

Students can also join the Frensham Junior School Snow Sports team that competes in Alpine, Skier Cross, Moguls and Cross Country­; often in state and national events.

In 2020, a student was selected to represent Australia or Australian Mogul Ski Academy in USA; in 2019, two students were selected to represent Australia in the Australian Winter Sports Club competition in the Alpine Championships in Switzerland.

In the 2019 season, Frensham Junior School team was 5th Place  Primary Co-ed Champion School NSW Snow Sports and in 2018 season, our team was 3rd Place. In the Interschools National Championships, Frensham Junior School students achieved top places both in the individual and team events every year.
