All students at the College are encouraged to participate in physical education and sporting activities, for the health benefits these offer, as well as the fun they can be. Our main focus is on involvement and enjoyment; students are not expected to perform perfectly in every sport. Students are encouraged to have a go, do their best and enjoy themselves.
Sports programs at the College offer students the opportunity to:
- Learn and practise sporting skills and rules in PE classes
- Participate in sporting competitions held during lunchtimes
- Represent your House in the College’s annual Swimming and Athletics Carnivals and cross-country run
- To experience a variety of sports in a number of local settings
