Students are provided with opportunities to participate in a range of physical activities during their weekly Sport lesson.
A highlight of the Sport program is our involvement in the Junior Secondary Sport (JSS) and Cairns Interschool Secondary Sports Activities (CISSA). St Mary’s has a proud and long standing tradition of being involved in JSS and CISSA competition, experiencing much success over the years.
