There are many avenues for students across the diocese to experience most individual and team sports.
As well as PDHPE and sport within schools, representative opportunities are offered to students through the Primary and Secondary sports councils, who are responsible for the provision of opportunities for students to participate in representative teams for a variety of sports.
I'm interested in...
The Parramatta Diocese Catholic Primary School Sports Council (PDCPSSC) provides opportunities for primary students in the diocese to participate in representative teams in a range of sports. All primary students from 8 - 13 years of age are eligible to participate and represent in their school and diocese in the sports of Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country.
The Parramatta Diocese Secondary Schools Sports Council (PDSSSC) provides the avenue for secondary students across the diocese to experience most individual and team sports. Depending on ability, students can also compete in the weekly inter-school sports afternoon or trial for teams/squads to compete against other Catholic schools students across NSW.
Both male and female students in primary and secondary are catered for with a wide selection of sports including:
- Cross Country
- Rugby League
- Rugby Union
Additional sports offered in secondary years include:
- Water Polo
