Sport is an integral part of Concordia’s extra-curricular program. Building on our Physical Education program, it offers extra opportunities for skill development and living a healthy, active lifestyle.
Playing sport helps broaden school friendship groups and helps to develop life skills such as independence, communication, leadership, teamwork and taking personal responsibility.
Concordia is highly successful in a range of sports, entering teams in state-wide competitions in sports such as basketball, netball and volleyball. Our basketball program has had a particularly proud history, having won several state school boys’ championship titles. In recent years, our volleyball program has been steadily building with a number of excellent results, including three consecutive Senior Girls’ premierships.
This sporting excellence is underpinned by our emphasis on participation. Students of all abilities are encouraged to participate in at least one of our many sports. We offer programs for both first time players and the more experienced.
