Inter-school Sport Selection Procedures

Applecross SHS participates in a number of sporting events across a wide variety of sports. The teams for these events are selected in a number of different ways depending on the circumstances.

Swimming and Athletics
Members for the Inter-school Swimming and Athletics Teams are selected following the school Inter-house carnivals. Selection is based on student performance at these carnivals. Students hoping to make the inter-school team should compete in the first division at the inter-house carnivals.

There are sometimes extenuating circumstances where a student may challenge for a position in these teams. If a student feels that they have grounds to challenge for a position in the team they must discuss the situation immediately following the announcement of the team with the Health & Physical Education HOLA. If it is deemed that a challenge is warranted then a time and date for the challenge will be set in consultation with all concerned.

Lightning Carnivals and Champion Schools Competitions
Lightning Carnival nominations will be taken by your teacher during General Physical Education lessons.  Nominations for Champion Schools Competitions will be advertised during morning notices and students will need to write their name on the list in the Physical Education office or on the Physical Education noticeboard.  Trials for Lightning Carnival and Champion Schools teams will be advertised during morning notices. If a student is unavailable for the trial they must discuss with the relevant staff member if another trial can be negotiated. Students are expected to attend all training sessions and team meetings that are held. Failure to attend may place their position in the team in jeopardy.
