Our Sports Program Leader, Mr Thomas Westcott, coordinates the Sporting Life at our College. From Netball to Rugby League, the opportunities to participate are varied.

Sporting Houses

Every student and staff member at Holy Spirit College belongs in a Sporting House. The Sporting House names were derived from an indigenous dialect: Arinya (kangaroo); Bilyana (sea eagle); Kambara (crocodile) and Yara (seagull).

College Carnivals

Each year, HSC hosts a Swimming Carnival, Athletics Carnival and a Cross Country Carnival. These events are popular with students and staff alike and give the opportunity for healthy sporting competition and spirited rivalry between Sporting Houses.
