Sport is an important part of the complete educational experience for all Saint Stephen’s College students. Through sport, the College encourages all students to strive to achieve their personal best.
The College is committed to providing students with a wide range of sporting opportunities and has a rich history of sporting achievements including multiple premiership winning teams and individuals who have represented their nation on the world stage.
Each student is allocated to a 'House Team' and has a number of opportunities to compete in inter-house sports carnivals throughout the year; including cross country, athletics and swimming. The Inter-house Carnivals serve as part of the selection process for students who represent Saint Stephen's at the Inter-school (APS) Carnivals.
