In addition to curricular sport and physical education, all students also have the opportunity to participate in our inter-school, inter-house and co-curricular sport.

Inter-school sport

Northcote High School competes in the local Darebin Division, governed by School Sport Victoria (SSV), which includes Reservoir Secondary College, Thornbury High School, St Johns College, Preston Girls Secondary College and William Ruthven Secondary College.

Winners in this division progress to regional (Northern Metro Region) and then to state championships.

We have separate teams for Years 7 and 8 and combined teams for Years 9 and 10 and for Years 11 and 12.

Students wishing to represent the school at a divisional level must attend training sessions to be selected in school teams.

Inter-house sport

All students are allocated to a house: Merri (yellow), Batman (red), Plenty (green) and Sumner (blue).

Inter-house carnivals are held each year in athletics and cross country, as well as football, netball and basketball. These carnivals are a great opportunity for students to participate competitively and for fun in a range of events, enjoy time with their peers, and are a chance to be selected for inter-school teams.

Parents are welcome to attend or to volunteer at these carnivals.

Co-curricular sport

In addition to inter-house sport and inter-school sport, students can join our co-curricular volleyball and cheerleading programs.

Students participating in these programs have the opportunity to engage in a team sport. It’s also a chance to build the skills to collaborate with peers across year levels, develop their leadership capacity, and become active members of the school community and positive role models.

All programs are run by qualified coaches from local community clubs to train students to compete in a variety of competitions across Victoria.
