Gymnasium activities were first practised in an old wooden building behind the main school. In 1957 a new Sports Pavilion facing the oval was dedicated by Archbishop Booth stressing “the importance of combining physical education activities with academic studies in order to develop the whole individual”. A swimming pool and large gymnasium were added in 1985 to the delight of the girls who had longed for a pool. Lessons in Physical Education were part of the weekly school schedule from Korowa’s earliest days and a fitness centre was added for student and staff use. In June 2020 the entire centre was demolished to make way for Korowa’s new Sports and Wellbeing Centre.

In June 2022, The Roslyn Otzen Sports and Wellbeing Centre was officially opened, featuring an eight-lane swimming pool, multi-purpose court, rooftop court, purpose built dance facilities, theatre, functional spaces and a fully-equipped gym. Spaces have been named in honour of Korowa’s alumni and past staff, read about our honourees here.
