Sports at Grace

Grace Lutheran College has a long standing record of success in sport spanning over 40 years. Our students are passionate about representing the college in a wide range of sports and activities that range from Soccer, Touch Football, Rugby League and Netball to Ice Skating, Gym and Ten Pin Bowling. We believe all students should be encouraged and have the opportunity to participate in sport and fitness, as a crucial education pillar in developing Grit, Growth and Grace. 

Participation in sport at Grace Lutheran College is compulsory for all students due to the physical, social and emotional health benefits it provides. This is supported by a range of learning and development opportunities, which cater for different interests, physical ability, age and gender of our students. These opportunities are divided into three bands - Recreation Sport (non-competitive/fun activities), Competitive Co-Curricular Sport and the GLC Sporting Excellence Program.For more information, please download the Sport at Grace Lutheran College Rothwell booklet.
