Iona Presentation College


Iona is a member of the Junior Independent Girls' Schools' Sports Association (JIGSSA) and the Independent Girls' Schools' Sports Association (IGSSA), which offer regular co-curricular sporting competitions. This provides quality sporting opportunities for students participating at different levels of competition in the pursuit of a healthy, active lifestyle.

As a member of JIGSSA, students from Years 4 - 6 compete in Interschool Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics carnivals, as well as Winter Games days for Hockey, Soccer, Cricket and AFL that are held during the school day. Competing in the JIGSSA competition prepares students for the IGSSA competition in the Senior School.

Students can also represent Iona at the Perth Netball Association and the Westside Wolves Hockey Club in teams that are coached by parents after school.
