St Paul’s College has a very good reputation in the sporting arena. Students have the opportunity to compete in a weekly sport as well as in representative teams across the Valley and Diocese.


Weekly Sport
In Years 7 students will be 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 such as touch, basketball, soccer, netball, volleyball and softball.

Years 8, 9 & 10 students select a sport from the local facilities 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 school.

If a student is unable to wear the full PE uniform to school on their allocated sports day, then they must wear full school uniform to and from school, and change into the PE uniform they have, for the sports periods only. Please refer to the Uniform section in this handbook for a more detailed sport/PE uniform outline, including what to wear during swimming activities.

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.
