At St Joseph’s Primary, we recognised that quality sport and physical activity at school has a positive influence on students' confidence, competence, health and motivation to be active at school and throughout their life.

Sport plays a significant role in school life, and we recognise that students have different interests, strengths and abilities. Students are provided with a wide range of sporting activities and opportunities to compete in school carnivals, Regional, State and National level competitions. We look for opportunities for all students to experience sporting activities that promote empathy, inclusion and respect for all. 

At St Joseph’s Primary, we inspire your child to be active and experience joyful and meaningful competition within our safe learning environment. We acknowledge the important part that sports can play in the development of teamwork, leadership skills, positive social connections, self-discipline, growth mindset and patience as our students become active and value-based members of society. 

At St Joseph’s Primary, we want our students to reach their full potential and experience their personal best, creating life-long memorable moments. Our students can participate in the Diocese of Lismore structured representative sport pathway for students.
