Sport is an integral part of our student's overall development, and Arndell offers an extensive sports program to meet these needs in both the Junior and Senior Schools.

Senior School students have the opportunity to particpate in the local HZSA inter school sports competition. There are also a number of Representative carnivals and sports through out the year.

Junior school students have the opportunity to develop in their sport through a variety of Gala days and Representative carnivals. Year 5 & 6 participate in the HZSA inter school sports competition.
