Sport

Sports are an important part of the complete educational experience for all Saint Stephen's College students. Through sports, the College encourages all students to strive to achieve their personal best.

Saint Stephen’s College students also enjoy opportunities to participate in their choice of competitive sports through the Association of Private Schools (APS) sports competition.

Students play in APS Sports from Year 4 onwards to improve their fitness and develop team skills. Students make friends with their teammates and with students from other schools. Students get to know their sports coach as another caregiver, learn to obey rules, respect the referee's decision and recognise the importance of playing fair.

The College also presents opportunities for students to compete at a higher level in a range of sports, including those offered through our sports excellence programme.

Upcoming Sporting Events in Term 1 for Years 4 to 6 APS Team Sports

Saint Stephen's College is a member of the Associated Private Schools (APS), which is a cluster of eight independent schools. The APS Sports competition gives students from Year 4 onwards the opportunity to compete in their choice of sports against the other APS schools in the cluster. It is a friendly yet competitive association that maintains the highest standards in sportsmanship, participation and performance.

The College also presents opportunities for students to compete at a higher level in a range of sports, including those offered through our sports excellence programme and the College’s various district and regional affiliations.
