Junior School Sports

The Junior School provides a well-organised and varied sporting program. In addition to swimming, cross country and athletics, we also offer a number of team sports including football, soccer, hockey, basketball, water polo, flippa ball, touch football and tennis.

Boys are encouraged to participate in at least one sport each year. Most sports are played over one school term.

The strong sporting history and fine traditions of the College are built around involvement and a spirit of working together. Each boy is recognised for the contribution he can make and respect for individual abilities is emphasised; teamwork and commitment are valued.

Students at St Virgil’s have opportunities for boys of all ability and interest levels. A wide variety of sporting competitions are available including House Carnivals, JSSATIS and STCPSSA Carnivals. At all times we have respect for our fellow players, our opponents and the officials and to have fun! 

Any enquiries relating to sport at the Junior School can be directed to the Health and Physical Education and Sports Coordinator Mrs Karryn McCullagh.

Transport & Supervision

Parents/carers are responsible for organising all transport and supervision of their child at Junior School sporting venues.


Students are to wear their full sports uniform when representing the College at sport, unless otherwise stated. Students are able to wear their Sport Uniform to school on days they have SVC Sport.


Each team entered into a draw requires a Volunteer Coach or Manager, who is generally a parent/carer of a child in the team. It is a requirement for this person to have a current Working with Vulnerable People Card (WWVP). Details about the process to obtain a WWVP card are available here.
