At St Leonard's College, we see Sport as vital to the development and education of our students. It contributes to their physical and mental health, helps young people make friends and encourages them to feel part of a community.
Participation in sporting teams is a vital developmental experience for students throughout their school lives. All students at St Leonard's are able to participate in cocurricular sport on several levels.
The House System provides a healthy competition for sports teams playing at an intra-college level.
St Leonard's sports teams also compete in a number of inter-school competitions. Many St Leonard's students move successfully into state teams as a result of their performances for the College.
