Sports played over the years include Archery, Badminton, Indoor Cricket, Lacrosse, Football, Basketball, Soccer, Tennis, Table Tennis, Handball, Hockey, Cricket, Netball, Softball, Rugby, Swimming, Athletics, Touch Football, Golf, Squash etc. and the school has achieved… much success with these both locally, State and Nationally.

135 students gained their intermediate certificates.

The opening of Elizabeth High School saw 1st and 2nd year students from that area transferred leaving Salisbury High with 473 students. Music and Drama have always been very important and in the early years a school choir was in existence. Many drama productions have been performed over the years to delight and appreciation of large audiences and Salisbury High School bands have entertained many people at various venues. This continues today, along with Dance and the Performing Arts.

The Library had a grand total of 2156 books. Salisbury High School Army Cadet Unit was formed and regular parades were held each Thursday afternoon. In the magazine of that year Mr Haines (Headmaster) commented that “120 scholars are in our first Leaving Class, which is a record number of class II school and is unlikely to be surpassed at this school for years to come.” There were many academic achievers but these had to transfer to another school to study at Leaving Honors level. (Mainly Enfield or Teachers College). The canteen’s takings were approx. 80 pounds per week and the profit was a valuable contribution to the school (as it continues to be to this day).
