Sports Committee

We have a sports committee that meets twice a term in week 3 and 7 dedicated to managing parent initiated sport for the children at Rosary School which is played outside of school hours.  Anyone interested is welcome to be part of the committee and attend the meetings.

There is a Rosary School sports policy with respect to parent initiated sports and this is available on our website.  All parents, students, spectators, officials and teachers are expected to abide by this policy.

Any concerns, issues or suggestions for existing or new sports can be directed to the Committee.

All people involved with the children in any way through these sports must have completed the process to be an “Approved Volunteer.”

These sports are run by parents so it works most effectively when everyone is prepared to assist.

The sports currently offered are basketball, netball, soccer and cricket. 

The Committee can be contacted by email at

The children wear their school sports uniform and equipment is provided by the school.
