Sport plays a significant part in both the physical and social development of all students. At St Francis Xavier, there are many opportunities for the students to develop the Fundamental Skills that help with a wide variety of sports and games. Students through years K-6 have the opportunity to be involved in weekly Physical Education Lessons. These lessons usually focus on Fundamental Movement Skills as listed by the NSW Board of Studies.
Further opportunities are available to students for selection in representative teams within the Clarence Zone and Lismore Diocesan levels before proceeding to Polding. The selection here results in representation at the Primary School Sports Association (PSSA) State level. Representation opportunities available for students attending St. Francis Xavier are Swimming, Cross Country, Athletics, Summer Sports and Winter Sports.
The Diocese of Lismore Sport online site provides valuable information for students representing Zone, Diocesan, Polding or NSW PSSA. Information includes a calendar, updated weather or venue changes and results.
