The Health and Physical Education Department of Auburn High School recognises the considerable benefits associated with being physically active. Students build stronger friendships with one another and with their teachers through their interactions on and off the sporting field. Their sense of school spirit, pride and teamwork is enhanced when part of a successful sporting team. And of course sport is also about having fun, enjoying good health and trying something new. Through Auburn’s Sporting Program, more than 200 students represent the school in the Interschool sport competition along with 15 teacher coaches training and coaching the students for these competitions.Multiple Student Leaders provide a wide range of leadership within our developing sport program. The school is affiliated with School Sport Victoria (SSV), and part of the Mullum Division level. If successful at Division level, students move on to compete at Region and then State level.House sport competitions are held in Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country.

The competitive House system consists of four Houses:

Freeman (red)

Hollows (yellow)

Murdoch (orange)

Winton (charcoal)

Year level sport competitions are often held at lunchtimes as well as our Annual Futsal Competition.
