School Information - Sport

Sport plays a significant role in the life of Alyangula Area School students. Building essential life skills and success through our Physical Education Program, regional events and State/National level participation is becoming ingrained in our students psyche.

Our school offers a diverse range of sports, ranging from AFL, Soccer, Hockey, Touch Rugby, Cricket, Tennis, Softball, Swimming, Athletics and more. We offer intra and inter school competition for our students as well as a range of lunch time activities to make sure all needs are catered for.

Alyangula Area School take part in a combination of G.E.R.S.A. (Groote Eylandt Regional School Sport Association) events throughout the year. This is where our school comes together to compete against the other schools on island to select students to represent the Arnhem Region at State level.

In the past 3 years we have sent 45 students to State level championships from our G.E.R.S.A. events. We have also had 6 students selected to represent the Northern Territory at National level. Even though we are remote, we strive to make sure our students are given the same opportunity you would have anywhere else.
