The latest offering in Sydney Catholic Schools’ comprehensive sport program is set to blow school holiday boredom out of the water.

Opportunities to try dragon boating, water polo, orienteering and fencing will be provided alongside traditional ball sports in one, two and three-day programs that emphasise skill building in an active, fun and supportive environment.

Sydney Catholic Schools’ Manager: Pre-Post Sport, Damien Kerr said the program represented a new frontier for Sydney Catholic Schools.

“Our school holiday program gives families an affordable way to try an array of different sports outside of school hours” – Damien Kerr, Manager: Pre-Post Sport
