Sport and PDHPE

We offer students a wide variety of sporting opportunities to challenge themselves and build their confidence.


Personal development, Health and Physical Education is in keeping with the Catholic ideals of education of the whole person. Thoughts, sensations, emotions and physical activities all have an influence on each other and on the individual’s growth towards personal maturity. Catholic education aims to mould these elements into a harmonious unity, in the light of human understanding and faith - Most Reverend P.L. Murphy DD, Chairman, Catholic Education Commission, NSW
