At Living Waters Lutheran College, we believe that sporting activities provide important opportunities for students to explore and extend their talents and self-knowledge, while also developing the lifelong skills of teamwork, leadership and being part of a community that is larger than the individuals. Taking part in sport promotes both high levels of participation and the pursuit of personal excellence by all students.
We have a House System comprised of four houses, each named after nearby rivers:
Canning House (Green)
Murray House (Blue)
Serpentine House (Red)
Swan House (Yellow)
Houses compete against each other in each of the sub-schools, for house shields in Athletics,
Cross Country and Swimming. These point-driven competitions culminate in an overall House Shield that is presented to the winning house at the end of each year. The College values the inter-house competition as a way to:
- Maximise students’ involvement and participation in sport
- Develop physical skills
- Promote physical and emotional wellbeing
- Foster team spirit, integrity and fair-play
- Assist in the selection of representative teams.
Living Waters Lutheran College provides a wide range of sporting opportunities through local and independent inter-school competitions. A range of lunchtime sports are also offered across the College.
The College also runs a Specialist Netball and Basketball program. Please see details below:
In 2022 The Basketball program is for students in Years 7 to 10. This program is specially designed to enable an elite group of athletes to study the game of basketball in their Physical Education lessons.

The Year 7-12 Development Netball Program is coordinated by the PE Department. This program is designed to support players who either have a strong potential for selection into the Specialist Netball Program when they reach those year levels or exhibit the potential to progress their Netball skills further in a Development Program.
