Involvement in sport and the development of student sporting skills form a vital part of the curriculum. Thursday afternoons are currently set aside for whole school sport (7-10) and may include activities such as Swimming, Cross Country, Cricket, Touch Football, Basketball, Board Riding, Netball, Squash, Tennis, Ten Pin Bowling, Volley Ball, Gymnastics, Softball, Weight Training, Aerobics, Soccer, Rugby League, Surfing etc. Sport, at a representative level, also offers considerable scope for students to participate and develop their skills.
In the areas of Swimming, Cross Country Running and Athletics students have three levels of competition; school Championships, Diocesan Championships and Inter- Diocesan Championships. In addition, opportunities are provided to gain selection in representative squads in Netball, Rugby League, Hockey, Golf, Basketball, Soccer, Touch Football, Inter-school Chess etc. Participation in sport is encouraged and recognised as a key element in a student’s overall development.
St Clare’s is well-represented in the area of Horse Sports. The group involved has grown over the last four years. Now with their own saddle cloths and brow bands they make an impressive sight at the Schools Horse Sports days that are organised within the region. Recently they took out the Mounted Parade an event that they have won the last two years.
