Physical Education

At St Anthony’s Kingscliff we promote the educational, physical and other benefits of sport for students of all levels and abilities including those with disabilities. We promote the ideals of sport including those of good sportsmanship, respect and playing for enjoyment. Students from Kindergarten to Year 6 participate in gymnastics, athletics, dance, swimming, and cross country. Students learn fundamental movement skills and have the opportunity to play representative sport.
We have three sports houses;
Mackillop Red named after Mary Mackillop Australia’s first saint.
Presentation Blue named after the Presentation sisters who started our great school.
Leonard Gold named after Father Leonard the first parish priest of Kingscliff.

Throughout the year students have the opportunity to participate in school carnivals and represent the school at various levels.
The school conducts its annual athletics, cross country and swimming carnivals. From these carnivals students are selected to represent the school at a Zone level. If successful they compete to join the Diocesan team, after which they can qualify for the Polding team enabling them to compete at the State level. In addition to school carnivals, other inter school sporting opportunities are available in all sports.
The school has a very proud sporting record and prides itself not only on its achievements but the sportsmanship displayed by the students.
