Each class from Kindergarten to Year 6 engages in a weekly session of sport. Children also participate in school based swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals in order to fill representative positions.

Primary schools in the Diocese of Wollongong such as St Paul's are invited to participate in annual carnivals for swimming, cross country and athletics. These major events also serve as a selection process for Diocesan teams. Children may progress from school level to Diocesan, to MacKillop, to NSW PSSA and ultimately National level in selected sports.

Years 5 and Year 6 school children are also invited to attend trials for positions in Wollongong Diocese representative teams for summer and winter sports including: basketball, tennis, cricket, touch football, softball, football (soccer), rugby league, rugby union, hockey, netball and AFL. These trials are held annually and link to the MacKillop selection trials.
