Sport plays an intrinsic role at Kormilda College. It is the only school in the Territory to offer a turf cricket wicket, meticulously maintained by a full time curator.
This has enhanced Kormilda's cricket program, attracting national and international teams, including an annual Trinity College Cricket Exchange (Adelaide) and Singapore Challenge. These alliances afford Kormilda cricketers with first class experiences. Over the years Kormilda's cricketers (both girls and boys) have gone on to achieve the highest levels of success, representing not just the Northern Territory but also playing for Australia.
Kormilda participates in both privately organised sports competitions between non-government schools, locally and interstate or within the NT Schools sports structure.
Kormilda organises its competitions between the sports houses of Djarrak, Baru, Nganabaru and Pumarali. Kormilda has two main days set aside each year for our unique sports days. In Term 1: Gala House involves sports such as: Football, Basketball, Netball, Softball and Cricket, Theatre Arts, Chess, and Debating and aims to engage all students. Athletics Day occurs in term 2 and is held off campus at Arafura Stadium.
Kormilda is part of the NT Schools Sports structure, through its participation in PARCS - Palmerston and Rural Cluster, that consists of a number of primary and secondary schools that compete against each other. Interschool Cluster competitions are organised for all students 10-19yrs between schools in their cluster. These 3 day cluster competitions, referred to as championships, involve cluster teams from the six Top End regions.
Sports organised through other local sporting organisations, such as Cricket, Football, AFL, Rugby Union and League and Hockey also support the College in our sports organisation between schools.
School Sport NT provides the pathway to representing the Northern Territory at national levels, leading to Australian representation. Students can nominate themselves through their cluster to be selected to attend the sport Development/selection camps held over a three day (Friday – Sunday) period.
From these camps, interstate squads are selected and announced to represent School Sport NT at the School Sport Australia Championships.
