The benefits of student involvement in organised sport activity are highly valued at St Patrick’s College.

Internal and Grade Sport played during Summer and Winter on a Friday, as well as representative sports, allow development of skills and teamwork, promotion of positive values and a visible commitment to the promotion of an active, healthy lifestyle. This is considered a very important part of the College program and all students are positively encouraged to engage themselves in many of these activities.

Friday Grade Sports include: Basketball, Soccer, Softball, Netball, Hockey, Rugby League (years 7 and 8 only), Water Polo, Cricket, Oztag , Volleyball and AFL (years 9 and 10 only).

Internal Sports include: Fitness, Swimming, Soccer Skills, Golf, Aerobic/Circuit, Tennis, Surfing Hire, Surfing BYO, Lifesaving, Five Sports, Dance, etc.

Learning time missed because of sport commitments must be considered in a learner centred educational setting. Students are to manage their class work and studies when away and make every effort to catch up on any missed work.

The following competitions and pathways are supported:

  • Diocesan Sport competitions and selection trials.
  • NSWCCC sanctioned/affiliated competitions: Cricket (Berg and Downie Shields), Rugby

League (Cochrane Cup), Basketball, Netball and Teams Tennis.

  • Statewide Competitions: Rugby League (Cronulla Knockout), Soccer (Bill Turner Cup and Bill

Turner Trophy), AFL (Swans Cup).

  • SSCCC: Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals

More significant than the breadth of sport offered is the total time out of school experienced by individual students. It is intended that this policy will require the more active student to carefully prioritise their chosen sporting commitments.

Students who have the necessary ability to represent the College in sport are expected to do so in a manner that demonstrates a spirit and enthusiasm in contributing to the efforts of the whole school community. Such an attitude is also regarded as a necessary condition of enrolment.

Students must be prepared to:

  • contribute their personal gifts and talents to the school community in sporting activities, especially if selected for representative capacities
  • attend all scheduled training sessions and training games
  • purchase and wear the correct school representative uniform and protective gear
  • conduct themselves in the spirit and true sporting ethics relating to our Catholic College.
