Within each school, students enjoy various House sporting activities coordinated by College Heads of Sport and House Coordinators. Points gained from these activities contribute to the Junior School House Trophy (campus based) and the College House Trophy (Years 5 - 12).
In Junior School students participate in a House Tabloid Sport Carnival or House Junior School Sports Day. The students engage in physical activities that promote fun, positive self-esteem, working together in an environment of co-operation and developing healthy attitudes to competition.
In Years 5 - 12 the House sport activities focus on inclusiveness, have a more competitive nature and encourage maximum participation by all members of the House. Three major House carnivals (swimming, cross country and athletics) are held during the year, which are conducted within each of the schools (Middle School and Senior School - Keilor, Middle School and Year 9 - Taylors Lakes). Performances at these carnivals are taken into consideration for a student’s inclusion into the College’s ACS (Association of Co-educational Schools) inter-school squads.
Other sporting activities that contribute points to the College House Trophy are lunchtime round robin competitions where House teams compete in various sports such as soccer, European handball, netball, basketball, polo hockey, volleyball and bocce. The competitions utilise the variety of high quality sporting facilities on each campus.
