Emma Kraft - Sports Wall of Fame 2010

Sport is huge at St Philip's!

In addition to Physical Education classes, St Philip's students play a wide range of sports. All students are encouraged to participate in order to develop skills, learn to compete enthusiastically, fairly and to co-operate unselfishly as a member of a team. The College runs one major sporting carnival per term which parents are welcome to attend.

Sports are played on a House, interschool, intra-town, intra-state and inter-state basis. Staff and senior students coach a large number of St Philip's teams playing in town competitions in a variety of sports including cricket, basketball, netball, volleyball, soccer, AFL and rugby league.

The College holds five inter-house competitions a year in which all students take part:

Summer Carnival
Winter Carnival
Cross Country
Athletics Carnival
Swimming Carnival

 

Sports Wall of Fame Awards

The St Philip’s College Sports’ Wall of Fame was unveiled in 2005, however the actual Sports Awards started in 2003. 

‘I want young people to understand that you can live your dream if you are prepared to strive and commit to achieving it, whatever it may be,’ says former Headmaster, Chris Tudor.  ‘All of the award recipients are, or have been, elite athletes.  Some have broken Australian records!  They all have one common theme, of not allowing isolation to limit their vision.’


The Sports Wall, sponsored by Greg Reval of Centralian Sports, is located in The Minnamurra Hall.  It features ‘story boards’ telling the inspirational story of St Philip’s high achieving sports people, as listed below:
