NORTHERN ZONE SPORT
Each school is represented on the committee by a staff rep who attends a meeting on the second Wednesday of each term in the staffroom at Churton Park School at 3.45pm. A calendar of events is prepared each year. Wherever possible, students from CPS are represented at all events. Cricket, football and hockey are played socially with teams picked on interest rather than ability. Swimming, athletics and cross country are individual competitive events which students can progress to the Northern Zone, Inter Zone and Regional level if successful.

School swimming sports are held at Cannons Creek Pool for students who can swim at least 25m, and an alternative fun morning of events is held simultaneously at Keith Spry Pool to cater for the less able swimmers. Cross Country and Athletics events are held at Churton Park Park, weather permitting. The first two place getters in all swimming and athletics events go on to the Northern Zone competition, and the first five cross country runners participate in the Northern Zone events. School sports uniforms are issued to all players. It is the responsibility of the player to return the uniform back to school freshly laundered.

NETBALL
Our school is represented in the Northern Suburbs Netball competition organised through the school for playing in Newlands on a Saturday during the winter months. Di Patchett is our school representative on this committee. Uniforms are available for all players. This is for both boys and girls.

MINIBALL
Miniball teams are organised through the school for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 during Terms 2 and 3 if there is enough interest and parents are able to manage/coach a team.

OTHER SPORTING CODES
At various times throughout the year other sporting codes offer coaching sessions and tournaments, and based on our long term planning we try to offer our students a range of options - including table tennis, volleyball, girls only events, Aussie Rules, futsal, gymnastics, basketball, waterpolo, rippa rugby and tennis, to name a few.
