High School Sports Program

St Charbel’s College believes that sport plays an integral part in the development of our students, and encourages the pursuit of sporting dreams in partnership with academic application.

The College is a member of the Sydney Catholic Colleges sporting association which allows female students a pathway into several representative sports. Likewise, male students represent the College in the Christian Brothers Sports Association. This membership allows talented athletes in our College to pursue representative positions at regional and state levels. Association competitions include Rugby League, Athletics, Dance, Swimming and many others.

Students who choose not to play representative sports are offered a range of activities every Thursday. Grade sport includes activities such as; Ten Pin Bowling, Ice Skating, Cardio Fitness Training, Bike riding, Table Tennis, Tennis, Outdoor Games, Swimming, Self Defence and Dancing. School sport enables students who are not always active to take part in sport on a leisurely level. This also promotes healthy lifestyle living, interaction on a social and physical level with students, staff and the wider community.

Primary School Sports Program

Students at St Charbel’s College, Primary School are involved in a variety of co-curricular sport activities as well as school PE lessons. Sports covered during co-curricular sports are Gymnastics, Dance, AFL and a two week Intensive Swimming program which usually takes place in Term 4 of the school year. School PE lessons take place on a weekly basis for children in Yeats 2 through to 6 and are administered by a specialised PE teacher. The children are introduced to new skills and taught the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship. These skills promote a healthy and active lifestyle that the students can adopt outside of school.

The school is part of the Inner West Catholic Primary Schools Sports Organisation which allows St, Charbel’s College to participate in a variety of sports gala days. The children are given the opportunity to represent the College in representative Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country to name a few. This allows St. Charbel’s College students to interact with students from other schools as well as practice the skills they have been learning at school during PE lessons. This also contributes immensely towards fostering a strong school spirit.
