Our Sports

Sport is an integral part of the culture of Sacred Heart Cathedral School. Students at all levels of the school experience a variety of sports.

The limited space of an inner-city school playground means the school utilises quality outside providers for aquatic education, ball skills, and athletics. Classes also have access to a wide range of Physical Education programmes and equipment as part of their in-school learning. The school is well represented and successful in zone, inter-zone and regional level events.
