Sport & Activities
At Concordia, we seek to provide students with the opportunity to participate in a wide range of competitive and non-competitive sporting and recreational activities.
Our aim is to encourage a healthy lifestyle and a lifelong enjoyment of exercise and sport.
We also believe that participation in sport can build character. Team spirit results when members play hard but fair, agreeing to be self-disciplined and courteous, playing within the rules and respecting authority and opponents.
All students at Concordia participate in sport on Wednesday afternoons. Each year a number of our students are selected to represent the Region or the State in their chosen sports.
In addition, there are opportunities throughout the year for students to participate in other competitive and non-competitive sporting activities. Inter-School and club competitions held outside school hours have allowed students with a specific area of interest to continue their development.
Sport in the Curriculum
Sport is an important part of the College curriculum from Prep through to Year 12. Students have the opportunity to learn about different sports as well as how to live a healthy lifestyle and make informed decisions about their health and wellbeing.
