Beyond the Classroom

St Canice’s recognises the value of learning experiences that occur outside the classroom. We aim to provide students with the option to participate in a variety of extracurricular opportunities.

These opportunities allow students to develop their natural talents and passions and explore new areas of interest. St Canice’s is committed to providing a holistic education that helps students develop physically, emotionally and socially, as well as spiritually and academically.

St Canice's Catholic Primary Katoomba Sport


Students are encouraged to participate in sports at school, diocesan and state levels. Sports include cross country running, athletics and swimming. Students are also given the opportunity to be involved in various sporting gala days, for sports including basketball, indoor soccer, and cricket. Our approach to sport is designed to promote healthy, active lifestyles and good sportsmanship and teamwork.

St Canice’s also provides students the opportunity to participate in a specialist Dance program in Term 1 of each year, and a specialist gymnastics program in Term 4.
