Sport

IMG_5361Physical activity, personal fitness and sporting skills are developed in a variety of ways at Oxley Christian College.

Inter-House Sport

Every student is a member of one of the three school Houses: Gibeon Warriors (Red), Tabor Trojans (White) and Zion Crusaders (Blue). Students compete for house points in the Athletics, Swimming and Cross-Country carnivals. Students who excel in these carnivals are invited to represent Oxley Christian College at inter-school carnivals. On the final day of school for Year 12 students, students in Years 7-12 compete in an Inter-House Sport Carnival in basketball, soccer and table tennis teams.
