In 2016, whole School House Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country Carnivals were reinstated, with a focus on students participating and the promotion of ‘House Spirit’. House Captains were tasked with building on student participation in House events, and the fostering of House Spirit through colour dress up and house chants. Shields are awarded to the House Spirit winners at each Carnival as well as to the Champion Sporting House.
The House Carnivals have been a great success, and are an essential part of positive school culture. The Houses also play lunchtime basketball, soccer, netball and volleyball tournaments throughout the year. The success has also been shared across the Houses, indicating fairness.

Highview College’s involvement in the ‘Independent Country Co-Educational Schools’ Sporting Association is a feature of our sporting and extra-curricular programs. Highview competes against seven other independent schools including, Girton Grammar, Bacchus Marsh Grammar, Ballarat Grammar, Gippsland Grammar, Goulburn Valley Grammar, Braemar College and Hamilton Alexandra College. We are fortunate to provide our country students the wonderful opportunities to compete at world class venues including MSAC, Albert Park and Bundoora State Park. As expected, the level of competition is very high, the organisation of events is exceptional, and our students love challenging themselves at these events.
The HC vs MEC Sports Cup has been fantastic for building community spirit and links between the students, staff and the schools. The schools play a Summer Sports Day (tennis, cricket, basketball) and a Winter Sports Day (football, soccer, netball). The students enjoy competing against our neighbor school. The standard of play and sportsmanship between the schools is exceptional.
