Glennie Junior Years has a structured sports program for girls in Years K to 6. The school offers extra sporting activities for girls and Glennie family members in addition to those currently on offer during the school day. All girls from Prep to Year 6 learn to swim at the Glennie Aquatic Centre as part of the curriculum.
Years K to 3
Our youngest girls learn the vital skills of balance, co-ordination and concentration in the Motor Skills Program. This prepares them for the challenge of learning the skills required to begin playing team sports at Glennie.
Years 4 and 5
Girls play touch, netball, athletics and tee-ball in an inter-school competition. Girls gain maximum exposure to team games whilst heightening their skill development and game tactics. This opportunity prepares the girls for the Year 6 interschool team sport competition.
The Junior Years sports program is an afternoon interschool competition for Year 6 girls giving them the opportunity to:
- Learn and practise new skills
- Meet new people
- Learn appropriate behaviour (i.e. sportsmanship)
- Learn about commitment
- Learn about co-operation and teamwork
- Build competence and confidence
Year 6 girls are encouraged to participate in trials for representative team sports. They can represent the School in touch, tennis, cricket, softball, netball, hockey, AFL, and soccer.

Glennie is a member of the Queensland Girls Primary Independent Schools Sports Association which allows us to compete in eight sports throughout the year involving girls from Years 2 to 7.
