School and representative sports pathways.
Marian Catholic College has a strong reputation in the sporting arena.
Sport at Marian Catholic College is an important part of a student’s physical and social development and students are offered a wide range of activities to participate in from a competitive level to refereeing or umpiring and coaching.
Our achievement in local, inter-school, State and National level competitions is distinctively Marian. Our extensive range of sports and activities is a credit to the staff that give their time in coaching and managing these groups.
School sport provides opportunities to experience new games and sports, develop talents in sports and recreation activities.
Students have the opportunity to represent the College through the Parramatta Diocese Secondary Schools Sport Council (PDSSSC). This includes the major carnivals of swimming, cross country and athletics as well as many other representative sports. In addition, championship days and summer/winter competitions across a variety of sports provide students with the opportunity to play weekly competitive sport.
Students can also be selected to represent the PDSSSC at the New South Wales Combined Catholic Colleges (NSWCCC) and New South Wales All Schools Levels.
