St Joseph’s offers a range of sporting opportunities to students.
We run our own school cross-country, athletics and swimming carnivals. Students who perform well in these events at a school level are given the opportunity to represent at regional, diocesan and state events. Students are provided with the chance to develop their skills in a variety of sports during our weekly Physical Education lessons. We often engage outdoor agencies and professional coaches to assist in the implementation of these programs.
As part of the school’s participation in the Good For Kids program, teachers are encouraged to incorporate movement breaks throughout every school day. Theses movement breaks are designed to use minimal equipment and assist in the development of the fundamental movement skills.
We are fortunate at St Joseph’s to have multiple outdoor play spaces that allow children to engage in activities such as cricket, soccer, basketball, handball and tag at lunch and recess.
