School Sports on Fridays
Sport is regularly conducted in the two hour session after lunch on Friday. Students are generally transported off site to particiapte in various activities. In Term 4, students have several options to choose from for Friday sport.
The Sporting Policy is for students to actively participate in a variety of competitive and non-competitive societal games and recreations. There is a balance between participation for all students and the ability to strive for excellence in competitive sporting activities. Sport is not an adjunct to other endeavours but is an integral component of the total school educational programme. Attendance at the College’s annual carnivals in Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country is compulsory.
The College holds its own carnivals in Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country. Students are selected after these Carnivals to represent the College in interschool Carnivals.
Inter School Sport
Interschool sport is encouraged with the College entering teams in Touch, Cricket, Hockey, Rugby Union and League, AFL, Soccer and Netball. A combined carnival for all Wagga Schools is held in Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country.
The College belongs to the Border Independent Schools Sports Association (BISSA). Carnivals in Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country are held with elite athletes moving to the Combined Independent Schools as members of the Riverina Associated Schools team. Successful competitors at the Combined Independent Schools carnival are eligible for the State and National Championships.
Parents wishing to collect their children from a sporting activity should provide the teacher responsible with a written request.
