Sport is a valued pursuit at Mueller College that flows from the primary years through to Senior Secondary. Its importance and value is reflected in the level of involvement of students in and out of school, the myriad of opportunities to represent team and individual, and the rigorous curriculum of both the Junior Health Physical Education and Senior Physical Education programs.
A physical activity program is structured for the different developmental stages of students and exposes students to a range of physical pursuits. Time is built in to their weekly timetable for an hour of physical education. This includes Swimming, Cross Country Carnival and Tabloid Sports Carnival.
Additional Sport Activities are offered outside of regular school time. These clinics run over several weeks by various sporting organisations and include:
