Sports

At Mountainview we pride ourselves in giving our students as many sporting opportunities as possible. All the major sports are played but we also add such sports as bowls, shooting and archery for those who are looking for something different.

Sports are offered at different age levels and this often means there is something for everyone, regardless of age or ability. The school participates in at least two exchanges with other schools which may also include chess, debating and theatre sports.
