sporting houses

Red Cliffs Secondary College is a healthy promoting school – “Be Active For Life”

As new students enrol at Red Cliffs Secondary College they will be assigned to one of our four Houses:

ALLUNGAH – “golden sun”

BINDAREE – “blue river”

TERRAGONG – “place of the vine”

WARRAGAI – “sand hills”

You will be assigned to the same House as older brothers or sisters that have attended this school. If you have no previous family connection, then you are randomly placed so that numbers are equal in each House. Once assigned to a House you remain in that House until you leave the College.

As a member of a House you have the opportunity to compete in swimming, cross country and athletics

The swimming carnival is held at the Red Cliffs Swimming Pool. Students participate in trials to determine who will represent their House. The carnival is scheduled in February each year.

The cross country event is held in Term 2 and all students participate. Training takes place in PE classes and students are encouraged to continue this training at home.

Term 3 is dedicated to athletics. Trails are held during PE classes and the carnival is held during week 3.

Performances at these carnivals enable teams to be selected for the Inter School carnivals held in Mildura.

The results of all three carnivals are added and at Speech night at the end of the year, the champion House for the year is announced and the shield awarded to House captains. Sporting Blues certificates are awarded to students who have achieved excellence in their chosen sports. All students who represent the College are also awarded certificates with a record of their participation. Junior and senior boy and girl sports awards are presented to the most outstanding students of the year.

There are numerous opportunities for students to represent the College in a wide range of sports. Students are selected after attendance at trials/training and are required to be up to date with all classes and home work in order to participate. College representation considered an honour, and behaviour and sportsmanship must reflect the high standards expected of our students.

Students who win locally are offered the opportunity to attend Northern Zone and VSSSA (State) finals.
