The spirit of sport at Christ Church
At Christ Church, sport is a core part of our school program where boys compete with each other and for each other.
Christ Church is one of the seven independent boys’ schools forming the Public Schools’ Association (PSA) of Western Australia, who compete across summer and winter codes throughout the year. The School has enjoyed consistent success across many of the PSA codes with accolades including:
- Winning a record 5 PSA Premierships across all codes in 2017
- Champions of the PSA Inter-School Swimming Carnival six times from 2008 and placing no lower than 3rd since 2005
- Winning the Head of the River Regatta eight times since 2002; winning Soccer four of the past seven years and Tennis four of the past five years
- Holding the WA Schools Teams Sailing Racing Championships title (non-PSA) 20 times since 1992.
The broad range of sports on offer include:
Term 1 and 4 (summer):
Basketball, Cricket, Rowing, Sailing (selected groups), Swimming, Tennis, Volleyball, Water Polo, Golf (Years 11 and 12, one-day event).
Terms 2 and 3 (winter):
Badminton, Cross Country, Football, Hockey, Rugby, Sailing (selected groups), Soccer, Strength and Conditioning (Years 11 and 12).
Boys are required to participate in regular training and organised weekly fixtures in the summer and winter sport of their choice. Generally, Years 7, 8 and 9 boys train after school on Wednesdays and play against other schools on Friday afternoons (in school time), while Years 10, 11 and 12 boys train after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays and play against other schools on Saturday mornings. While our staff are the primary source of coaching Christ Church boys also train with highly regarded coaches including former Olympians, national and international players. The multi-dimensional relationships that stem from the interaction of staff and boys, in a sporting setting are highly beneficial to the students development.
The School’s outstanding sporting facilities include a gymnasium complex, heated 50m pool and extensive playing fields. International and national tours are also offered for many sports.
The seven schools that comprise the Public Schools’ Association (PSA) of Western Australia are Aquinas College, Christ Church Grammar School, Guildford Grammar School, Hale School, Scotch College, Trinity College and Wesley College.
