Good sportsmanship and fair competition are the foundations of all sport at St Laurence’s College.

A student’s participation in sport is an important component of the well-rounded educational experience offered at St Laurence’s College. The College’s Co-Curricular sports program offers students the opportunity to participate in a variety of sports and caters for the beginning sportsman through to the elite athlete. 

Through a student’s participation in sport, St Laurence’s continues the development of essential lifelong physical skills and healthy behaviours, which continue into adulthood. The College also believes that sport is an aid to good academic achievement, as sport - and the associated training - is carefully integrated with the study patterns of a student.
