Inter-school competitions, inter-house competitions, inter-class competitions and extra-curricular sporting activities all combine to create the chance for teams and individuals to participate in a safe and friendly environment. Inter-school competitions allow the students who are able to provide their own transport the opportunity to travel to other venues and enjoy the friendships that develop from such activities. These events generate a deep feeling of pride for the students when competing in Tannum Sands colours.
