Co-Curricular - Sport

Sporting Policy

The Sporting Policy is for students to actively participate in a variety of competitive and non-competitive societal games and recreations. There is a balance between participation for all students and the ability to strive for excellence in competitive sporting activities. Sport is not an adjunct to other endeavours but is an integral component of the total school educational programme. 

Attendance at the College’s annual carnivals in Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country is compulsory.

School Sports on Fridays

Sport is regularly conducted in the two hour session after lunch on Friday. Students are generally transported off site to participate in various activities. In Term 4, students have several options to choose from for Friday sport with those on the higher welfare levels having first choice.

Sport Carnivals

The College holds its own carnivals in Swimming, Athletics and Cross Country. Students are selected after these Carnivals to represent the College in interschool Carnivals.

Inter-school Sport

Inter-school sport is encouraged with the College entering teams in many sports including Touch, Cricket, Hockey, Rugby Union and League, AFL, Soccer and Netball.
A combined carnival for all Wagga Schools is held in Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country.

The College belongs to the Border Independent Schools Sports Association (BISSA). Carnivals in Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country are held with elite athletes moving to the Combined Independent Schools as members of the Riverina Associated Schools team. Successful competitors at the Combined Independent Schools carnival are eligible for the State and National Championships.  

CIS Sport 

There has been a slight change in the nominating process for NSW CIS events. Students are now required to complete a NSW CIS nomination form, have that signed by their parents and returned to Mrs Kjaer's office in the Gym. The calendar includes the competition dates and the nomination closing dates. As well as this, there is a NSW CIS board outside Mrs Kjaer's office in the Gym, which will have a copy of the calendar. It must be noted that whilst the College will make individual nominations, it is the responsibility of the students’  family to finalise the nomination online and arrange all other logistics relating to the competition.

See below a notice from the CEO of NSWCIS Lyndall Jesse

Dear All,

Thank you for your patience I know there is a lot of uncertainty out there, and the sooner we can set some clear guidelines for CIS events then hopefully this will assist your associations schools and parents.  

Given that the directives have no outdoor events over 500, and no indoor events over 100 until the 16 June and the school guidelines are no inter-school sport events for more than 3 schools, it will be impossible to run CIS events in the first half of Term 2.   

At this stage, CIS will cancel all events until the 8 June.   We will make these changes to the events calendar. The status from a PSSA and a CHS point of view is temporarily ceased until further notice, NSW All Schools events would also fall in line with this.  Following discussions with PSSA/CHS personnel, I think we are fairly safe in assuming there won't be any pathway events up until around 8 June at least.   As you are aware the inability to hold events at one level,  school or association,  has a knock on effect for the pathway.  Even if things changed and we were suddenly able to hold events, there would be no teams to compete in them.   

Eastern Creek is closed until 16 June which means that the CIS Cross Country will more than likely be cancelled, as  there are no other venues that would be permitted to take us, on our current date, 11 June.   If things were to change it would be problematic as many of you have not been able to run your events.    However, let's just leave that one for now and deal with it in the next CIS event status review.  The sports that people are currently wondering about entries for, have been dealt with and we have a clear direction. 

We will review the status of CIS events again on the 30 April.  Hopefully, by then we will have a clearer idea of what we may be dealing with and for how long sport maybe on hold.    In reality, I think that we are probably looking at no sport in Term 2, but let's just deal with it in manageable blocks,  as necessary.  

Take care everyone and if you have any questions please contact me.

Update from CIS regarding CIS Events, Term 2

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing enforcement of social distancing measures, all CIS events in Term 2 have been cancelled.   We will keep you posted  on the status of our Term 3 events and review the situation again on the 30 May.  An updated news alert has been placed on the CIS website.

Update from CIS - June 2

There are positive signs for sport in general with the announcement today (2nd June) of the return to community sport for Under 18's on 1st July and we are hoping we may see some progress with school sport in the next few days. Subsequently, no update as yet.

Be patient and keep checking the website, as we are hoping things will become clearer in the next week. Please be aware that as a representative pathway, the return of CIS events will be slower, as we wait for inter-school and association sport to recommence and flow through to this level.

Please note we are currently not taking nominations for Term 3 sports.

We will notify schools and associations of any changes and list these on our website.
