St Joseph’s places a strong emphasis on sport. Sport presents students with challenges both within the school, and also in the wider community. Participation assists students to reach their full physical, social, emotional and cognitive potential. We are proud to offer a range of sporting opportunities, alongside high quality sporting facilities. For further information regarding either school or representative sport please contact us via the information at the bottom of this page.
Students and parents are encouraged to download the new ‘Skoolbag’ phone app. We utilise this resource to keep people up to date with all the latest sport happenings such as CCC registrations, gala day info, changes to sporting events etc. Click here for Skoolbag App link.
Please be aware that for all Diocesan Gala Days the Diocese has implemented a new policy that all students attending must be in full school sports uniform. Students not in sports uniform (unless wearing another uniform while competing) will not be allowed to attend the event. Please keep this in mind, especially seniors, when considering uniform purchases.
When representing St Joseph’s in team sports (Rugby League, Soccer, AFL, Hockey etc) we provide uniforms for students to play in. We ask that students provide their own socks to play in which are Navy and Sky Blue hoops (similar to the old NSW State of Origin Socks). These can be purchased from the uniform shop for $9.00.
YEARS 9 & 10 SCHOOL SPORT
Information regarding our recreational school sport program can be found on the School Sport section of the school website. Students in years 9 and 10 and their parents must visit the school website to download the permission note to access the information for school sport. Parents and students then need to sign and return the consent forms in order to participate in this program. If notes are not returned students cannot go to sport and will stay at school to do alternate activities.
Students interested in attending NSWCCC trials will need to complete an expression of interest or registration on the NSWCCC website. Information regarding this process for can be found on the Rep Sport section of our school website and all parents and students are encouraged to look at this information to ensure you do not miss any opportunities.
NOTES AND PAYMENTS
Permission notes for all sporting activities can be downloaded from the Notes and Payments section of the school website. If there are any issues re printing/access etc, please contact us here at school. Please note we will no longer allow students to attend sporting events if their permission notes etc are not signed by the due date. Where possible, we try to give as much notice as we are able (usually 1-2 weeks). This should be enough time for students to download the note, get it signed and return it to school. Your support in this matter will be greatly appreciated.
