​College Sport

Our sport program at Mt Maria College Petrie has something for every student. Mt Maria College Petrie students have sporting opportunities available to them through participation in HPE Curriculum subjects at all year levels, VET (Vocational Education and Training) pathways in Sport & Recreation in Years 10-12 and College Carnivals in Swimming, Cross Country, and Athletics.

HPE Curriculum subjects develop students sporting skills and understanding in a range of physical activity settings. Students engage in a variety of games and sports, outdoor recreation, lifelong physical activities, and rhythmic and expressive movement. VET pathways in sport and recreation develop students' competence in a range of skills specific to roles within the Sport, Recreation and Fitness industry. Students learn to coach, officiate, and participate in a variety of sports, while developing a healthy lifelong relationship with sport and physical activity.

The College Carnivals provide all our students, regardless of ability, with the opportunity to engage with physical activity in a fun environment, while competing for their House. Fun, music, activity, and community collide in these unique events. Our attendance for all three of the big carnivals continues to rise year on year, as students recognise that our Carnivals in Swimming, Cross Country, and Athletics are events which bring our community together in a way like no other event.
