Sport is a dynamic aspect of the co-curricular program at St Philomena School, in which self-control, respect, humility, teamwork and a healthy lifestyle are appreciated. St Philomena offers a range of sporting opportunities for students to foster their individual talents from Year 5-12 throughout the year.

Interschool sport

St Philomena competes in the local United Sports League outside school hours which encompasses students from Years 5 – 12 (Primary Thursday afternoons and Secondary Monday afternoons) across a variety of sports including Futsal, Basketball, Touch, Soccer and Netball.
