Sporting Pathways

Physical Education classes are an integral part of our weekly curriculum providing opportunities for students to pursue varying sporting pathways, depending on abilities. Your child is encouraged to develop their sporting talent, build confidence and enjoy the accomplishments associated with sport.

Participation in sport fosters the sense of belonging, enables meaningful social engagement and helps students become resilient.

Our sporting pathways provide a variety of options designed to nurture the God-given abilities of your child or to develop new skills. 

Our pathways include:

Curriculum Sport

Your child will enjoy and benefit from our weekly Physical Education on-campus sporting programs that include basketball, cricket, tennis, volleyball, soccer, touch football and handball. Through these inclusive sports, in a supportive community, students can unlock their potential as they explore and discover new abilities, overcome social barriers and enhance their sporting skills. Our adaptive strategies enable your child to engage and thrive in the sports arena.
