St Mark’s is a College growing in sporting successes. Our focus is on providing maximum opportunity for success at all levels of team and individual sport with increased physical activity and participation.
ALL students at St Mark’s College are given the opportunity to participate in team or individual sport. From Kindergarten to Year 12, students are exposed to sporting and physical activity pursuits at a variety of levels.
From Year 3 onwards, all students are given the opportunity to represent the College in competitive sport through IPSSO (Primary) and SWISSA (Secondary). Early exposure allows students to develop interactive and bonding skills within the College community as well as enhancing the ability to interrelate with students from other schools, backgrounds and cultures.

St Mark’s College has quickly developed a strong and competitive reputation in sports such as Oz Tag, Basketball, Cross Country and Athletics, with students achieving high levels of success at district, regional and state level competition. Venues across NSW such as The International Regatta Centre at Penrith, The Olympic Athletics Centre at Homebush, & the International Triathlon Circuit in Sydney are just a few of the many venues students that St Mark’s students have had the opportunity to compete at and be involved in.
