School and representative sports pathways.
At St Pauls we offer a range of competitive and recreational sports and activities to cater for students' interests and abilities.
Sport offers a value-added proposition to every curriculum area; challenging critical thinking skills, decision making, and moral reasoning. The introduction of sport in the school environment, particularly through team activities, provides a social network for students based on common interests outside the classroom. St Pauls Catholic College has a strong tradition of participation and sport success.
School sport provides opportunities to experience new games and sports, develop talents in sports and recreation activities.
