At the College sport is an important part of the development of the whole child. Sport and exercise are critical in the academic development and mental health of students. Our priority is to provide students with a diverse range of sports.
The community culture of sport at the College is one where children move through the school and want to give back by leading younger students.
At the College
we have a developed culture of strong healthy competition where students strive to compete at the highest level, achieving great results at local, state and national levels
Working together as a team using the abilities of each team member is encouraged as the main focus
Competing with a proper regard for the integrity of others, especially opponents is both expected and encouraged
Children of all capabilities are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of sport
An important part of opportunity and structure of sport at the College is the flexibility for a diverse range of sports based on the partnership between staff and enthusiastic parents within our community. The College can provide a framework, opportunity and avenue for students to compete and practise in their sport of choice. This can be an individual or team sport, and includes sports such as: soccer, athletics, swimming, skiing, diving, AFL, softball, hockey, cricket, gymnastics, equestrian, netball, basketball, rugby, trithalon and mountain biking.
The participation in Riverina sports Gala Days give students the opportunity to compete in a wide range of team sports testing their skills against their peers from other schools.
Gala Days can include:
It is important for students, to give priority in sport to the values of faithfulness, commitment and personal growth in every sporting endeavour, irrespective of winning or losing. Teachers from the College will encourage every individual in every sport to learn to give their best, ‘win, lose or draw’. It is a pleasure to cheer on and enjoy our student’s efforts in this context.
The College is a member of Christian Schools Sports Association (CSSA) and the NSW Combined Independent Schools (NSWCIS) Sports Council. Students that are eligible may represent the College in events organised by these organisations.

"Sport is about providing children the opportunity to experience a wide range of sports and learn the basics in a solid way, allowing students to then excel in the sports they become passionate about. The discipline, focus and lessons learned in playing sport help students understand the kind of commitment and time that is required in other parts of life, including their academic studies."
