Sport has a long and proud tradition at St Paul's College. Both formal and informal sports activities not only empower our students, they enhance positive self-esteem.
Participation in sport has many physical, mental and social benefits including maintaining a healthy weight and learning the skills necessary to maintain a healthy lifestyle after graduating.
Students have the opportunity to compete in weekly sport as well as in representative teams across the Valley and the Diocese of Lismore.
In Year 7 and 8, students are involved in either pool activities or school sport or town sport. Pool activities include swimming carnival preparation, stroke correction, fun relays and water polo. School and town sport involves mixed teams playing sports including touch, basketball, soccer, netball, volleyball and softball.
Years 9 and 10 students select a sport from the local activities e.g. school grounds, gym, tennis courts, aerobics, school sport, indoor sports and ten pin bowling.
Year 11 Sport is held for one period every Friday at the College.
Any student unable to participate in a sport must have a note explaining the reason. They must report to the person in charge of that lesson in the morning before or during Pastoral Care on Sports Day. If students are travelling offsite, they will attend the venue as normal as no supervision is available at the school. An injury or medical condition which will result in a student being unable to participate for more than two weeks requires a medical certificate.
