Sport

At Prendiville our students are spoilt for choice when it comes to opportunities to participate in sporting endeavours. These range from elite competitions at representative levels right down activities focused purely on participation.

 The majority of our sporting endeavours arise through our affiliation with the ACC (Associated and Catholic Colleges) who facilitate competitions with 65 other Non -Government schools from around the state in various events each year.

 Coastal Associated School (CAS) Sport

Through our affiliation with the ACC we are a member of the CAS Sports Group.

Commencing it’s third year in 2016, the Northern Reefs Rugby competition was introduced after a lack of suitable Rugby opportunities were available to a number of Northern Suburbs Schools.

 SSWA / Champion Schools Competitions

Prendiville’s involvement in School Sport WA (SSWA) events serves four major purposes.

  1. It allows us to fill gaps in the demand for certain sporting opportunities that are otherwise not provided through the CAS Sports model.
  2. It allows CAS teams to progress into state wide competitions that provide higher levels of competition.
  3. Students are able to compete in individuals events against other students from around the state that may lead onto State team selection.
  4. Students are able to attend team sport Trials to earn selection in State Representative teams to compete at National Schools Championships.

 In the past Prendiville students have participated in sports that include Athletics, AFL, Basketball, Baseball, Cricket, Cross Country, Golf, Hockey, Netball, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Touch Rugby, Triathlon, Volleyball, Water Polo, Orienteering, Surfing, Body boarding, Table Tennis, Equestrian and more.

 ACC Interschool Carnivals

As a school we compete in three major carnivals run by the ACC. These carnivals are

  • Swimming – Term 1
  • Cross Country- Term 2
  • Athletics- Term 3.

 Selection in these teams is an honour not afforded to many and a strong emphasis is placed on training in the lead up to these carnivals. From these carnivals our top level athletes are encouraged to enter various All Schools State Championships that in turn may lead to National competitions.

 Interhouse Sports Competitions

 These include the major Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country carnivals as well as a Surfing/ Bodyboarding carnival, year level volleyball competitions and mixed sports as part of our Annual Prendiville Day celebrations.

 Although champions and named for all of the major carnivals and they are all the major selection criteria for our Interschool carnivals and some SSWA events. They are open to all students of the College and participation is the major focus of the Interhouse competitions each year.
