Sport programs at DHS

How students can get involved

Physical activity is highly valued at Dandenong High School and there are many sporting opportunities for students to participate in a wide variety of sports throughout the school year. The school recognises that active engagement in physical activity and sport is an important part in the development of lifelong healthy habits for our students.

Through Physical Education classes students progress in their skill development and knowledge of many sports, and learn about the critical importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, cooperation and inclusivity within a sporting context. Students are given opportunities to improve their leadership capabilities through peer teaching, and build their capacity to strategize and problem solve throughout many practical experiences.

Dandenong High School works extremely hard to deliver quality opportunities for students to involve themselves in an array of sporting programs. These include:

  • Interschool Sport
  • Lunchtime Sport
  • School Carnivals (Swimming, Athletics, Cross Country)
  • District, Regional and State Sporting opportunities
  • Melbourne Victory School of Football program (selection process)
  • Junior swimming program

  • Soccer

  • Netball

Other sporting opportunities are available for access through the Outdoor Education program which involves exposure to areas such as surfing, hiking, canoeing and caving.
