Sport

Physical education is woven into the fabric of Gib Gate. 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.

Gib Gate teams enter Southern Highlands local competitions for:

  • Cricket and Master Blaster
  • Basketball
  • Netball and Netta
  • Soccer
  • Hockey and 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 Gib Gate Snow Sports team that competes in Alpine, Skier Cross, Moguls and Cross Country­; often in state and national events.

In the 2017 and 2018 seasons, our team was 3rd Place Primary Co-ed Champion School NSW Snowsports.

Our Equestrian Team

The Gib Gate Equestrian Team has some of the finest young riders in Australia and regularly win awards and honours in local, state and national events.

Our team has been awarded Champion Primary School at the NSW Interschool Equestrian Championships for 2017 and 2018.

 

Sporting Facilities

Students have access to all the equipment and facilities they need to excel in a range of sports. These include:

  • Hard courts for tennis, netball and basketball
  • Bike track
  • Cross country track
  • Cricket nets and pitch
  • Soccer fields
  • Athletics facility
  • Gross motor equipment for competition, training and recreation.

Our connection with Frensham School means Gib Gate students can also access the Synthetic Turf Hockey Field and The Centenary Pool – an indoor, heated 25m pool for Water Polo and Swimming.
