Sporting Opportunities

Every student has access to a range of co-curricular options, including languages, music, the arts, community service, leadership and sport.

Offering our students a rich and diverse range of sporting activities.

Physical Education is a core study for all Year 10 students and will consist of both practical
and theory sessions. John Monash Science School recognises that physical activity is
linked to emotional well being and academic performance. Apart from the associated health
benefits, it is also a means of releasing tension and aiding relaxation.
Physical Education classes will access the impressive array of sporting facilities at Monash
University as well as the hard court facilities on our own school grounds. The Year 10
program will include a mixture of individual and team sports, and competitive and noncompetitive
activities. Physical Education also incorporates aspects of Health and the JMSS
Learn To program to develop the whole student.
