Sport & Outdoor Education
At Christ Church, sport is an integral part of our holistic educational program. Boys participate in regular training and weekly competition in a summer and winter sport of their choice. Christ Church boys train with highly regarded coaches including Olympians, national and international players. The School’s outstanding sporting facilities include a gymnasium complex, naturally heated 50m pool, FINA standard Water Polo pool and extensive playing fields. International and national tours are also offered for many sports.
Christ Church is one of the seven independent boys’ schools forming the Public Schools’ Association (PSA) of Western Australia, who compete throughout the year.
The range of sports on offer include:
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 a Wednesday and play against other schools each Friday afternoon (during school time), while Years 10, 11 and 12 boys train after school on Tuesday and Thursday and play against other schools every Saturday morning.

Christ Church’s Outdoor Education program develops character and skills in the boys through the promotion of self-reliance, leadership, teamwork, responsibility, healthy risk-taking, communal living and environmental care.
The Christ Church Outdoor Education Program commences from Year 4 and includes trips to Kooringal, the School’s Outdoor Education campus near Dwellingup, a combined outdoor experience with St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls in Western Australia’s iconic south-west in Year 8, culminating with an 11-day expedition in the D’Entrecasteaux National Park around Walpole during Year 10.
The Year 7 camp runs over four days in House groups and includes bushwalking, environmental activities, orienteering, canoeing and abseiling. The activities and challenges are designed to build a strong awareness of self and living with others.
Year 8 Cape to Cave experience
In 2021 Year 8 students from Christ Church and St Hilda’s will come together to participate in a combined outdoor experience in Western Australia’s iconic south-west. Together with a team of experienced outdoor educators, the students will be guided through a five-day journey that includes bushwalking, caving, abseiling and connecting with local people.
The Year 9 boys experience nine days at Kooringal, taking on extensive challenges in expedition bushwalking and navigation, canoeing, a ropes course, rogaining, a solo experience and community service.
Year 10 Venture expedition
Venture has been going for more than 20 years and is a rite of passage for Year 10 boys. It is an 11-day journey through the bushland and coastal settings of D’Entrecasteaux and Walpole-Nornalup National Park and a culmination of the Outdoor Education program.
