Sport & Outdoor Education

Sport

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 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:

Badminton
Basketball
Cricket
Cross Country
Football
Hockey
Rowing
Rugby
Sailing
Soccer
Surfing
Swimming
Tennis
Water Polo

 

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.

Outdoor Education

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 annual camps in Years 7 to 10 take boys on a journey from Kooringal, the School’s Outdoor Education campus near Dwellingup, to Shark Bay onboard the STS Leeuwin II, and culminates in an 11-day expedition in the D’Entrecasteaux National Park around Walpole.

Year 7

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 Leeuwin adventure

The Outdoor Education program for Year 8 is six days aboard the STS Leeuwin II, sailing around the World Heritage Site of Shark Bay. By providing a highly challenging experience, this adventure expands the boys’ capabilities and sense of self.

Year 9

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.
