​Sporty girls

So much is going on in the sporting arena for our junior school girls.

St Catherine's is a member of the Independent Primary School Heads of Australia (IPSHA), joining 28 other independent schools to compete in carnivals and team sports. It might be athletics, gymnastics or swimming where your sporty one will find her niche or perhaps she'll love the netball comp and become a star shooter?

She can try out for as much as she likes!

Choose me! I can play! 

From Years 3 to 6 your daughter can join teams in

  • Soccer
  • Water polo
  • Hockey
  • Basketball
  • Netball
  • Cricket
  • Tennis

Talented students who meet the criteria may try out for representative sport teams.

On the team

Girls in Years 3 to 6 can take up representative sports. They join squads and then teams are selected for

  • Athletics
  • Swimming
  • Diving
  • Cross country
  • Gymnastics
  • Snowsports

Once team selections are made the girls are offered an appropriate training program to prepare for the IPSHA carnivals. 

In the swim 

We are very excited about the two new pools being built at St Catherine's as part of our Research, Performing arts and Aquatic Centre (RPAC). The aquatic centre will provide a state-of-the-art platform to support our sports programs including learn-to-swim,  squad training, water polo and diving. So if she's a little fish or an even bigger one, she's going to feel right at home in our brand new pools.

Happy campers

As your daughter grows in independence, she will be able to have some nights away from home at camp. Years 4, 5 and 6 are away for two nights and it is a thrilling experience where they have the opportunity to test their independence and challenge themselves. The activities are carefully structured to challenge each age group. We choose from some of the most rewarding outdoor education programs Sydney has to offer.

For our Year 3 girls, we gently introduce time spent away from home. The girls have a Friday night sleepover here at school. It's held in our delightful library and is as cosy as can be.
