Successfully in zone and state level competitions
Successful teams at District level can proceed to Southern Metropolitan Region and then on to State finals.
Being a middle-sized school, every student has the opportunity to participate in a range of sports. We have a long-standing partnership with Life Saving Victoria and a proud tradition of competing successfully in zone and state level competitions.
House sports will be conducted for swimming, athletics and cross-country. Students are allocated to Houses as they arrive in the school.
Students have the opportunity to compete in Athletics, Swimming, Cross-Country, Summer Sports and Winter Sports, all of which continue on to the State level, culminating in the Victorian State Schools competitions.
Teachers train and coach all these teams and coaching sessions are held at lunch time and after school. Sport has been included as a part of the curriculum for all students in Years 7 and 8.
This comprehensive program includes camps, lifesaving training, excursions, first aid training and adventure activities that enhance personal and social skills and develop teamwork, initiative and self-reliance.
Online applications via the Mordialloc College website will open: TBA

Physical Education in Years 7 and 8
In Years 7 and 8, Physical Education classes enable students to learn the importance of cooperative behaviour and participation through activities such as athletics, volleyball, cricket, role playing, fitness, swimming, soccer, gymnastics, decision-making activities, hockey, football, basketball, netball, softball, futsal, indoor games and tennis.
Participation in these activities allows students to meet the challenges provided by varied experiences and to develop positive social skills for the future. There is also a major Health component in the curriculum.
The study of Health and Human Development provides an opportunity for students to investigate health
and human development issues across the lifespan. Students will develop the knowledge, attitudes,
values and skills to become actively involved in influencing their own health and development, and the
health of their local and global communities.
VCE Outdoor and Environmental Studies develops students’ understandings of outdoor environments,
and the ways in which humans interact with, relate to and have impacted outdoor environments over
time. ‘Outdoor environments’ encompasses landscapes, both local and further afield, that range in
health from protected wilderness to those heavily impacted by human practices.
The study enables students to make critically informed comments on outdoor environmental issues, including asking questions about environmental sustainability and human connections to Country, both past and present. Students are able to understand the importance of change to environmental health from human or natural influences.
Physical Education focuses on the relationship between motor learning and psychological, biomechanical,
physiological and sociological factors that influence physical performance and participation in physical
Sport Education in Years 7 and 8
