Aquinas College boarding houses participate in the annual inter-house Br Clery Cup.
This competition showcases the great culture among our boarding houses, the positive sportsmanship and good-natured rivalry among our boarding students.
The boys gain points in competitions in a number of sporting events, including; Cricket, Swimming, Volleyball, Basketball, Football and Soccer.
In addition, boarders take part in a Talent Quest, which is a battle of the bands and solo performance competition for both junior and senior year groups.
As the school week comes to a close on Friday afternoon, boarders look forward to the many different activities on offer each weekend as part of the extensive recreation program offered by the College.
The Recreation Officer organises leisure activities for our boarders tailored to students interests and may engage other schools in activities and events. Activities throughout the year include; socials/bush dances with other schools, visits to Kings Park, movie nights, sporting events, river cruises and various excursions to places such as Fremantle and Adventure World, and exhibitions like the annual Sculptures by the Sea which transforms Cottesloe Beach.
Boarders also take part in the annual fundraising event Relay 4 Life, which attracts boarders from schools across WA to Aquinas College to participate. The Boarders’ Ball is also a terrific opportunity for boarders to hold their own function, dress up for the occasion and invite partners from other schools – these events are always memorable for our boarders and highlights of their time at Aquinas College.
