Sporting success

Toorak College celebrates National and State sporting success, and congratulate our very talented students.

Some individual achievements include Emily Hamilton-Smith in Year 11, who captained the Victorian Under 15 Hockey team to win their first national trophy at the recent Australian Women's Championship in Sydney. Sophie Jackson, also in Year 11, competed at the Victorian State Sailing Championships and placed first in the 420 class, and Year 9 student Holly Garac won a Gold Medal for high jump at the National Athletics Championships.

After months of training, nine Toorak Aerobics teams competed at the Schoolaerobics Preliminary Finals in Geelong recently. Our results were outstanding with eight teams qualifying for the State Finals in June. 

The Toorak College Equestrian team also achieved great results, winning the Equestrian Victoria Championships at Werribee during the holidays, with 22 riders competing in the event. The Toorak team also won Round 2 of the ISJ Show Jumping series.

There are so many benefits to participating in regular physical activity; it can uplift your mood, give you more energy and help to maintain good health. We offer our students a wide range of sporting opportunities, and encourage them to explore leadership, teamwork, responsibility, risk taking and commitment while enjoying the health benefits from regular physical activity.

Our Senior School girls participate in the Girls Sport Victoria (GSV) program, of which Toorak College is a foundation member; it is the leading provider of sport to independent girls’ schools.

Toorak College provides so many opportunities for students to find their passion. There is a sport or activity for everyone, it is about giving it a go, trying new things, making new friends and finding the activity that works for you.
