Sport

In keeping with our general aim of developing the whole person, sport and physical education are considered important aspects of the school curriculum.

All children are encouraged and motivated to participate in sports, physical education and health programs.

Houses

Students are placed into a House which they represent at the three school carnivals.  These teams enjoy a friendly rivalry in Cross Country, Swimming and Athletics.

School Sport

The school employs a specialist Physical Education Teacher two days per week. These lessons involve the teaching of skills in a variety of sports and improving students fitness levels.

Representative Sport
All students in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to participate in diocesan gala days in AFL, Rugby League, Soccer, Netball, Basketball and Cricket.  St Columbkille's also enters teams in the Rod Wishart and Paul McGregor Shield Rugby League competitions, as well as NSW Futsal Championships.

The three major school carnivals, Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics, also act as trials for school teams to participate in Diocesan carnivals.  From here, successful students can trial for selection in Mackillop (NSW Catholic Schools) teams, which can lead to State (PSSA), and ultimately, National teams.

Students talented in a variety of Winter and Summer (team and individual) sports can also trial for selction in Mackillop teams and follow the same selection path as above.
