Students are exposed to a variety of games, activities and sports, which aim to improve their physical fitness, coordination, and self-confidence. Our emphasis is on enjoyment, skill development and willing participation.

In the infants grades the emphasis is on the development of gross motor skills, coordination, and team participation. In the Primary classes, team sports, for example, soccer, cricket, netball and rugby union and league are introduced. Regular exercise and fitness are an integral component of the curriculum. Specialist coaches regularly work with class teachers in the school to provide expert instruction in various sports.

St Mary’s is a keen participant in Archdiocesan Catholic School carnivals, competitions and local gala days.
