The Physical Education program at St. Benedict’s has been designed to be inclusive of all students. Recognising the significant health benefits of physical activity, the program is designed to encourage maximum participation, enjoyment and progression of physical activity skills in an endeavour to inspire and enable lifelong participation in a variety of sporting and recreational activities. Physical Education lessons include team building and cooperative games; perceptual motor activities; fitness; athletics; ball skills and recreational games, as well as, swimming lessons (conducted by experienced professional coaches in Terms 1 or 4).

Our annual all-school Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals are held throughout the year. Students who are selected, from these carnivals, for additional competitive teams (based on times) are provided with the opportunity to train in the lead up to the below events:

  • Catholic Zone 6 Carnivals. 8 years +.
  • Pine Rivers District Sports. 10 years +. We can also conduct school trials for students to attend District trials in a wide range of other sports including tennis, rugby union & league, touch football, soccer and netball, basketball, softball, AFL, hockey, cricket and triathlon.
  • Regionals, Metropolitan North or QLD Schools States.
