These initiatives promote physical activity and develop competency in movement skills.

Morisset High is one of the few schools who have implemented a fully inclusive strength and conditioning CrossFit program available to students. This is a holistic program linking theoretical and practical application which aims to provide students with unique opportunities to be physically active in relevant ways. Our CrossFit program covers fundamental skills used in day to day life focusing on fitness which students can carry on after they complete their schooling. Our emphasis within this program is learning how to move safely in a fun and supportive environment whilst increasing strength, cardiovascular capacity, power and mobility to name a few.

The evidence is overwhelming that we as a society are not moving enough and consequently have developed poor routines and habits. CrossFit Morisset High aims to change this to educate students on the benefits of being active and highlight how fun and supportive fitness can be. By participating in this program, your child will be contributing in meeting the Australian Physical Activity Guidelines in a variety of ways in both a moderate and vigorous capacity.
