‘It’s not the shoes. It about what you do in them.’
Sport is compulsory at Wesley. Participation in sport provides life skills beyond the enjoyment of the sport itself, including teamwork and developing healthy and active lifestyle habits which we hope will endure.
Wesley students participate in before and after school sports training and competition against other PSA schools. Inter-school fixtures are typically held on Thursday afternoons for Years 5 and 6, Friday afternoons for Years 7 to 9, and Saturday mornings for Years 10 to 12.
Summer sports include cricket, rowing, tennis, basketball, volleyball, water polo and swimming. Winter sports include Australian Rules football, soccer, hockey, rugby, badminton and cross-country. Athletics, golf and surfing are additional stand-alone sports.
We have a strong tradition at Wesley and our sportspeople have excelled nationally and internationally. The OWCA Hall of Fame recognises former students who have represented the State or Country at a senior level. Recent inductees include the Marsh brothers and Chris Rogers (cricket) and Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin (AFL football).
