Pacific Lutheran College provides excellent sporting opportunities for students. Offering a wide range of sports, Pacific aims to develop fitness, a sense of personal wellbeing, physical prowess and confidence as well as instill a sense of enjoyment, commitment, sportsmanship, courage and resilience in their young sportsmen and women.

Students from all year levels (Prep – Year 12) participate in the College’s annual Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country carnivals. Competing for one of the College’s four houses – Bula, Buran, Mumba or Wira, students are given the opportunity to earn points towards the annual Foundation Cup while enjoying the friendly competition amongst their peers. Participation in District, Regional and National carnivals offers a higher level of competition for elite performers.

Prep – Year 3 students have the opportunity to participate in a number of sport development programs outside of school hours. These programs encourage participation and give students experience in a variety of different sports where they can learn basic skills and rules.
