St Monica's has a proud sporting tradition where students have the opportunity to take part in representative sports at a number of levels.
Sport at St Monica's is about energy, teamwork, health, and most importantly, fun. We offer a variety of sporting choices so all students can discover their passions and talents, as well as a number of carnivals and opportunities to represent our school.
The Swimming Carnival is held in Term 1. All the children from Stage One to Stage Three participate in at least one event. There are novelty events to cater for beginner swimmers. Again children may nominate to participate in other events. Children in Early Stage One remain at school on the day of the swimming carnival.
The Cross Country is held in Term 2. The children undergo training in the weeks leading up to the event by gradually building on the distance they run. Just prior to the Cross Country the children's level of fitness and ability to participate in this event is evaluated. The Cross Country is held on a school day and all children in Stages Two and Three are expected to attend this event. Early Stage One and Stage One remain at school on the day of Cross Country.
The Athletics Carnival is held in Term 3. All the children from Early Stage One to Stage Three participate in at least one race and one team sport. The children may nominate to participate in longer distance races or field events such as long jump, high jump, shot put etc.
In each of these areas children have the opportunity to compete against other schools at a Zone Carnival.
As well as our range of carnivals and sports lessons as part of the curriculum, St Monica's provides the facilities for interested students to take part in a number of other sporting programs and initiatives throughout the year.
Tennis lessons are available by a professional coach before school as an optional extra for children in Stages Two and Three. Tennis lessons are approximately $45 per term for one lesson per week.
Flexi-Kids Gymnastics is an in-school gymnastics program which runs for a school term within the school. Each lesson is designed to progressively teach children different levels of gymnastics, from basic to more advanced skills. The programs meet and exceed the syllabus requirements as set by the Education Department and each student will receive a certificate on completion of the program.
