Sport opportunities on campus
Waratah Campus provides sport activities for students across all ability levels. The program is designed to be inclusive and all students are encouraged to participate.
From 2022, the weekly sports program will consist of a double period every Wednesday where students can participate in a sport or recreational activity of their choice. Activities can include traditional sports, as well as ice skating, trampolining, laser tag, tenpin bowling, putt putt golf, fitness training and more (some activities will require travel to an external location).
In Year 7, students will experience a variety of the above actvities in semester 1 and then choose which one they wish to continue for semester 2.
For students interested in competitive sporting activities, there are a number of opportunities:
- Hunter Region Trials – for high achieving athletes. Students can attend trials for selection into Hunter Region teams for a number of sports.
- Carnivals – College or campus carnivals are held for swimming, athletics and cross country, giving students an opportunity to progress to Zone and beyond.
- Knock out competitions and Gala Days - Callaghan College Teams compete in open and age division competitions across a range of sports including representative rugby league, soccer, netball (girls), basketball, cricket (boys), Touch and Futsal. If students are interested in participating, we encourage them listen out for the upcoming competitions announced at the assembly.
All students interested in competing in representative sport are encouraged to introduce themselves to our Representative Sport Coordinator (Miss Bradley) to let her know their sporting interests. It is important students listen out for the sports report at assembly to ensure they don’t miss upcoming sporting opportunities.
Breaktime Sport Competition
Students have the opportunity to take on the staff and other student teams in Waratah's Breaktime Sport competition. This is held during some recess and lunch breaks, with different sports each Term. Listen out to Daily Notices in morning roll call for more information.
