Sport and fitness is a very important part of life at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. Through sport, our students learn skills to develop teamwork, leadership, cooperative skills and problem solving strategies, which benefit them across all Key Learning Areas. Kindergarten to Year 6 students participate in weekly outdoor sports activities and a weekly PDHPE lesson. Students wear their sports uniform every Wednesday and Friday. 

St Joseph’s offers a wide range of sporting and physical activities as part of the Personal Development, Health and Physical Education curriculum with a focus on the fundamental movement skills.  Sports played at the school include but are not limited to: 

  • Rugby League
  • Soccer
  • Netball 
  • Tennis
  • Hockey 
  • Basketball
  • Cricket 
  • Touch Football 
  • Cross-Country
  • Athletics 
  • Swimming.

Three main school carnivals are held each year: 

  • Swimming (Term 1) 
  • Athletics (Term 2) 
  • Cross-Country (Term 1)

Students are assigned as members of one of three house groups:

  • Byamee
  • Mulwala
  • Wangary


All carnivals are based around the notion of every student participating at their level yet, at the same time, providing a pathway to the Bathurst Diocesan carnivals which provide an opportunity for students to compete at the following carnivals: 

  • Diocesan Carnival 
  • NSWCPS - Polding Selection Trials 
  • NSW PSSA Championships 
  • Australian Schools Championships


St Joseph’s participates in a number of gala days each year. Teams comprising of students from our school compete with other schools. 

  • Rugby League
  • Netball 
  • Tennis
  • Touch Football 
  • Soccer

Success at this level may result in the team progressing to compete with teams from wider areas.
