Macquarie College offers an outstanding sporting program in which students have many opportunities to participate in a range of sports, and also to explore avenues for representative selection to Regional, State and National levels.
Macquarie College is a member of the Hunter Region Independent Schools sport association (HRIS), and the Combined Independent Schools sport association (CIS). Our College sportspeople regularly attain excellent results in regional sport carnivals against other much larger schools in the Hunter region.
We deliver an integrated approach to sport, where all sport classes are conducted by trained physical education specialists. Our PDHPE program focuses not only on traditional development of sporting processes and skills, but facilitates student learning in elite athlete performance, the psychology of sport and managing personal choices relating to a healthy lifestyle.
Students participate in three Interhouse sport carnivals throughout the year including Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics. Representing Charlton, Dobell and Shortland houses, students enjoy these Interhouse rivalries in a collegial and spirited manner.
Students can compete in Athletics, Basketball, Cross Country, Equestrian, Golf, Netball, Tennis, Touch Football, Soccer, and Softball. The development of an on-campus Sport & Recreation Facility will deliver additional resources for teams training and competing in these sports, and can extend the sport and lifestyle offerings within the College campus.
