Given our extensive playing fields, and 2 km of shoreline, it’s not surprising sport is keenly embraced at Aquinas. In addition to physical education classes, your son has the opportunity to participate in rowing, swimming, tennis, cricket, basketball, water polo, athletics, AFL, hockey, soccer, rugby union, cross country, volleyball and badminton.
Aquinas also offers students an exciting range of outdoor education and recreation options including golf and surfing.
We are a member of the Public Schools Association of Western Australia and regularly field teams to compete against six other boys’ schools in Perth. It is expected all boys will participate in the PSA sporting program from Year 4 through to Year 12.
We also conduct healthy inter-House competitions. Sporting tours are periodically arranged both within Australia and overseas, adding a further dimension to the sporting arena.
Regardless of a boy’s physical ability, we believe sport teaches important life skills such as leadership, teamwork, resilience and perseverance. We encourage our boys to live balanced lives, where both academic work and physical activity are embraced.
