At Marian Catholic school all students participate in Physical Education lessons each week, based on the Australian Curriculum, with our PE teacher. Throughout the year, students are taught a wide range of sports and games, focusing on developing a range of skills.

Students are also given opportunities to participate in a wide range of  sporting opportunities throughout the year, including trialing for various sports as promoted by Townsville School Sports.  These opportunities will be promoted to students and through various communication channels (e.g. Newsletter, Weekly What’s Ons).
