Healthy, active and connected for life
Our students benefit from the early development of healthy, active lifestyle and recreational habits that will stay with them for life.
Every student at Marist Regional College is encouraged to be active and sociable through playing sports and games with their peers at the College and at other facilities.
- Swimming, athletics and cross-country carnivals at school, regional (NSATIS) and state (SATIS/all-schools levels)
- Rosters in all-year levels for hockey, Australian Rules, netball, soccer and basketball
- NSATIS sports – rosters against other independent schools in the North in tennis, soccer, basketball, Australian Rules, netball, hockey and rowing
Students also enjoy cricket, triathlons, surfing, gymnastics, touch football and a range of other activities.
College Sports Houses
An active community life is integral to the College’s endeavors to develop each student to their full potential. The College House system is one avenue for developing a common spirit among our students. Our four houses reflect the Marist and Mercy heritage of the College.
Houses can earn points by students for their participation in the College swimming, athletics, and cross-country carnivals. The House with the most points at the end of the year is awarded the House Champion Cup.
