Outdoor Education

Outstanding sporting facilities

Our students enjoy an array of sporting facilities, which enable them to increase their fitness, but also to develop socially and gain experience in working within a team. From playing hockey, football, and cricket at the Bell Street Sports Ground, to making the most of our newly refurbished and extended Boat Club at Lallaby Road, New Town, all Friends’ School students have the opportunity to discover a new sporting passion or develop an existing skill.

The Friends Health & Fitness Centre caters for all levels of fitness and includes a 25 metre indoor pool, fully equipped free weight and circuit gym, Spin Cycle studio, large group exercise classes, spa, steam room and tennis courts.

The School also owns and operates Far South Wilderness Lodge, located on the estuary of the Esperance River. Situated beneath towering Peppermint Gum trees and accompanied by the sound of birdsong, Far South is the ideal launching point for Australian outdoor activities, such as orienteering, fishing, rowing, abseiling, sea kayaking, rafting, caving and more.
