St Thomas the Apostle Primary offers many opportunities for children to be involved in a variety of sports.
All children participate in class sports which focus on non-competitive activities building fitness and skills in an inclusive environment.
School Team Sports
Students in Years 3-6 have the opportunity to participate in a range of team sports organised by local sporting bodies in both competitive and non-competive formats. Events we regularly attend are the Catholic Schools netball and soccer carnivals; soccer, league, AFL and union competitions; girls and boys touch gala days.
Children elect to join these teams. News of these events are distributed at school and noted in the newsletter. We ask parents to assist at these days.
Community Team Sports
Girls and boys from St Thomas the Apostle regularly play soccer (from Kindergarten) and netball (from Year 2) in weekend team sports with their classmates. These teams are formed during February each year. Parents volunteer to be coaches and managers of these teams.
We hold school carnivals for swimming, athletics and cross country. Eligible students then proceed to higher levels of competition in Tuggeranong Zone, ACT and beyond.
We notify families through the newsletter of the dates for PSSA team sports trials.
