The students participate in regular physical activity with their classroom teacher and a specialist teacher is employed for explicit Physical Education lessons with the students.
Our four colour houses are Keenan (green), Crawford (red), Polding (yellow) and Gilroy (blue).
Sport is recognised as part of a set of important life skills that will increase well-being and confidence. The students have many opportunities to participate in sport in school as well as out of school.

Students are able to advance to the Diocesan or State level in Cross Country, Athletics and Swimming.
Senior students are given the opportunity to try out for representative Catholic teams in a large variety of summer and winter sports.
