Mt Maria College Petrie is a member of the South East Colleges Association of Sport (SECA Sport), comprising 15 BCE (Brisbane Catholic Education) schools.
SECA Sport provides students with the opportunity to represent the College in inter-school sport. Students will compete in the SECA Winter seasons in Terms 2 and 3. The sports for the 2023 SECA North Winter Seasons are listed below.
Mt Maria College Petrie also competes in SECA inter-school carnivals in Swimming, Cross Country, and Athletics. This provides a wonderful opportunity for students to enjoy a higher standard of competition, without the need to meet qualifying times and distances, typically associated with representative sport. SECA also holds Gala Days for select sports throughout the year, which provides a further avenue for participation in inter-school sport for Mt Maria College Petrie students.
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.
Mt Maria College Petrie students have representative pathways available to them through our affiliation with Pine Rivers District Sport and Metropolitan North School Sport.
