Co-Curricular School Sport

All students in Years 4 - 12 are involved in competitive sport.  Teams range from novices to local and State Premiership winners.  Through our participation in the Associated Private Schools (APS) fixtures, students can represent the College in regular, inter-school competition in a wide range of sports and in carnivals.

Carnivals: 

  • Swimming
  • Athletics
  • Cross Country

Team Sports (some sports are modified for the Junior School):

  • AFL
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Football
  • Hockey
  • Netball
  • Rugby
  • Softball
  • Tennis
  • Touch Football
  • Volleyball
  • Water Polo 

Those committed to high achievement in sport have access to Regional, District, State and National representation, and may also engage in a special academic and sporting excellence program to support them in becoming professional athletes.

Children from Prep to Year 3 develop sporting skills, balance and co-ordination through Physical Education lessons with specialist teachers. Prep students also enjoy a Music and Movement program. There is a Prep to Year 3 Olympics event each year and a modified Cross Country experience. Preps also have Learn To Swim lessons in Terms 1 and 4.
