At St Joseph's we provide a diverse range of sporting options that allow all children the opportunity to participate and develop. We deliver high quality programs in partnership with sporting organisations that are inclusive, challenging, and enjoyable. All students participate in sport and PDHPE on a weekly basis. We understand that an active and healthy lifestyle has many benefits and are integral to a child’s development.
Pathways to representative sport are provided for a range of individual and team sports and the school is proud of its history of success at higher levels. Students may be chosen to represent at Zone, Diocese, State (Polding), and National levels.
Sport plays a significant role in both the physical and social development of a child.
It is important to provide opportunities for the child to develop Fundamental Movement Skills that help with a wide variety of sports and games. Students are given the opportunity to play in team games and sport in a safe and supported environment. This ranges from class level sport to State representation.
Students participate in School Sport Carnivals. These include Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics.
Further opportunities are available for selection in representative carnivals within our Diocesan Sports system, at Hastings Zone and Diocesan Regional levels, before proceeding to Polding.
Selection here results in representation at Primary School Sport Association (PSSA) State level. Representation opportunities available for students attending St Joseph's Primary School include:
• cross country
• football (soccer)
• rugby union
• touch football
• rugby league
