Sports Philosophy

Given the high standard of competition and facilities provided, there are high expectations of student involvement. All ability levels from the elite to beginner are catered for in all sports.

An environment of tolerance and pride in Assumption College is of paramount importance. To continue this proud tradition, students must participate in at least one co-curricular activity each year (be it sporting or cultural).

Many become involved in several activities, and the benefits to their social, physical and mental development are enormous.
