The St Francis Sporting Academy was established to engage students in a high-quality sporting program to increase participation in representative and elite sports, to provide sporting career pathways and to shape the student as a whole, by instilling values such as commitment and resilience. It is open to all students in Years 4-12.
A strong emphasis is placed on developing safety and children's confidence in the aquatic environment.
Prep - Year 6 students participate in a 3-week swim program that focuses on water confidence and the basic skills of swimming.
Year 7 -12 students participate in the Swimming Carnival.
The carnival features individual races, house and staff relays, novelty events and a war cry competition.
The P-12 Cross Country Carnival is held on-site with students completing cross-country courses mapped out around school grounds and surrounding areas.
The P-12 Athletics Carnival is always a highlight for students and staff alike.
Prep - Year 3 students participate in a fun day where they experience modified jumping, running, hopping and throwing events.
Year 4 - 12 students participate in track and field events, including sprints, high jump, long jump, shot put, javelin and more. Novelty events are ever popular, bringing out the house spirit in all students. From this point, a college representative team is selected to compete at the Pacific District Championships.
