Our approach supports student involvement in Community (Club) Sport, while also offering the opportunity to represent the College in Intra and Inter School events.

Over 40 years College students have achieved outstanding results at local, regional, state and national levels across various sports.

Christian College participates in competitions and provides pathways in the following ways:
