square footyIn keeping with our general aim of developing the whole person, sport and physical education are considered important aspects of the School Curriculum.

All children are encouraged and motivated to participate in sports, physical education and health programs. In competitive sport, it is our aim to encourage participation, team spirit and enjoyment rather than winning.

Sports Teams

On enrolment at School, children are placed in Sports Teams – St Joseph (Red); Polding (Blue); Vaughan (Green); Therry (Yellow). These teams enjoy a friendly rivalry in school sporting events.
 A Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics Carnival is held each year.

Mackillop Sporting Teams - Diocesan Representative Teams

All students in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to participate in diocesan gala days in AFL, Soccer, Netball, Basketball and Cricket.  

They also have the opportunity to participate in Futsal, Rugby Union, Touch Football and Rugby League competitions to name a few.

The three major school carnivals, Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics, also act as trials for school teams to participate in Diocesan carnivals.  From here, successful students can trial for selection in Mackillop (NSW Catholic Schools) teams, which can lead to State (PSSA), and ultimately, National teams.

Students talented in a variety of Winter and Summer (team and individual) sports can also trial for selction in Mackillop teams and follow the same selection path as above.
