School and representative sports pathways.
At Emmaus we offer a range of competitive and recreational sports and activities to cater for students' interests and abilities.
Students are able to supplement their physical education by participating in annual athletics and swimming carnivals as well as walkathons and cross country competitions.
Years 7 - 10 students are involved in a weekly sport program, and students have the opportunity to participate at school, Diocesan and State levels in many of these sports. The spacious grounds at the college allow for more than ample training areas. Sport choices include 'away from school' activities and 'at school' activities.
Students will have the opportunity to participate in four sports (one per term) of their choice over the course of the year.
School-based sports include:
- Touch Football
- Hip-Hop Dance
Sports held at external venues include:
- Rock Climbing
- AMF Bowling
- Ice Skating
- Don Bosco
School sport provides opportunities to experience new games and sports, develop talents in sports and recreation activities.
