SPORT

St Clares Narellan Vale Page Thumbnail 29St Clare's provides a diversity of sporting opportunities both at school and representative level.

School classes have dedicated sport lessons each week. These lessons involve the teaching of skills in a variety of sports and improving students fitness levels. The teaching of sport is part of the school’s PDHPE curriculum.

Representative students in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to participate in diocesan gala days in AFL, rugby league, soccer, netball, basketball and cricket.

The school conducts two major annual sport carnivals – cross country, swimming. These events act as trials for school teams to participate in regional and Diocesan carnivals. From here, successful students can trial for selection in MacKillop (NSW Catholic Schools) teams, which can lead to State (PSSA), and ultimately, National teams.

Students talented in a variety of winter and summer (team and individual) sports can also trial for selection in MacKillop teams. These students have the opportunities to trial for the Wollongong Diocesan team in the following sports: AFL, rugby league, soccer, netball, basketball, cricket, softball, hockey, and tennis.
