Please read the following information before completing the online selection form using the link sent to you via email when selections open.
Student leaders will run a range of competitions plus a full programme of sports and cultural activities for students throughout the year.
The College enters various music, dance, drama and theatre competitions and events during the year including inter-school, regional and national events.
There are a variety of tournaments at junior and senior level during the year. Major tournaments and competitions take place during tournament weeks both in summer and winter for athletics, badminton, basketball, cricket, cross country, cycling, football, futsal, golf, hockey, ice hockey, rowing, rugby, table tennis, trapshooting, tennis, touch, and volleyball.
Selection for these teams is based on students that play for the College throughout the season.
Team players are not guaranteed to play in the tournament team. This will be selected on skill, attitude, coach, and manager feedback etc.
Students are presented with opportunities to participate in inter-school exchanges with schools from around the country and overseas. This is an important part of the St Andrew’s College sports and cultural experience.
Cups and trophies are awarded to students for their sports and cultural performances during the year. These are normally presented at the Award section in the Friday assemblies throughout the year. Parents of students receiving trophies will be invited to the assembly and are also welcomed to stay for morning tea afterwards.
If you receive a trophy, it is your responsibility to return it cleaned and engraved to either reception or directly to the Sports Co-ordinator, Ms Leanne Ward. Students who were presented with sports trophies in 2023 will need to return their trophies by the following dates:
Athletics and Swimming trophies NOVEMBER 2023
Winter sports trophies JUNE 2024
Summer sports trophies AUGUST 2024
Details of uniform requirements for each sport are outlined in this booklet. A sports uniform is available through the College Shop. In some cases students are provided with sets of uniforms that remain the property of the College, and a deposit and/or hire charge may be required. Students failing to return such gear will be invoiced for the cost of replacement.
Where possible, students will wear their PE uniform for sport.
All teams are required to wear their full sports uniform for all team photos.
Teams are transported to games and cultural events using College vans or hired taxis and buses. The cost of hiring these vehicles will be disbursed to the accounts of the students concerned.
Students with their own vehicles are not to take passengers in their cars without the knowledge of the coach or manager of the team and without the written permission of the parents or guardians of both the driver and the passengers concerned.
The College co-curricular budget aims to cover the costs of some coaching/tutoring, equipment, and College-based facilities. To help cover extra equipment, court hire, tuition or affiliation fees, most sports and cultural activities incur a charge, and parents are advised of this either in this handbook or directly from the sports or cultural co-ordinator early in the season.
