Sports and fitness

The benefits of sport activities are numerous at Canterbury Boys High School. So help your child choose a fun way to learn, develop talents and skills, build confidence and friendship in a great team environment.

Our boys have the opportunity to participate in a range of extra-curricular sport programs. These programs enhance our students' skills as we have innovative partnerships with a range of professional sports associations. This includes the national rugby league (NRL), Sydney FC ( a Sydney based soccer) and the Sydney Swans and GWS Giants (teams that are apart of the Australian football league or AFL).

The extra-curricular sport opportunities include:

Carnivals and knock-outs

Our boys have the opportunity to engage in sport through whole-school carnivals and various knock-out events against other schools throughout the year.

We hold annual swimming and athletics carnivals for the school community to participate in. The swimming carnival is held at Canterbury Pool each February and the athletics carnival is opposite the school at Campbell Oval each May. From here students are selected to represent the school at the zone carnival. We have an impressive record of students' going on to compete at zone, regional and state events. This can also be said regarding the various knock-out gala-day team events our students engage in throughout the school calendar.

Representative knock-out team events we have participated in include:

  • rugby league
  • rugby union
  • AFL
  • soccer
  • futsal (indoor soccer)
  • cricket
  • basketball
  • hockey
  • table tennis.

Fitness challenges

Throughout the year, students have the opportunity to participate in various fitness challenges. These are led by the PDHPE staff and access school-based facilities including our gymnasium and outdoor sports fields. Students can self-refer to this program or can be referred by a parent or teacher. Participation is voluntary but encouraged.

NSW premier's sporting challenge

Students and staff participate in teams in the ten week School Sport Challenge, which is a fitness program that is held after-school. The Premier's Sporting Challenge (PSC) provides opportunities for students to develop leadership skills through sport and physical activity. Information on the PSC can be found on the PSC website.
