All classes take part in an exercise and skills programme. The purpose of this is to build up the children's fitness and co-ordination as well as improving skills such as throwing, catching, and bouncing. Children in years 5-6 participate in the Interschool Sports Competition with other schools in the Burdekin. These sports include Modern League/Touch, Soccer, Cricket, Basketball for boys and Softball, Touch, Netball, Basketball for girls. Fun Runs, interhouse athletics and swimming carnivals are highlights of our athletic year where all children can participate. St Colman's School has two sports houses - Blue - Leichhardt and Yellow - Wickham. We also go on to participate against other primary schools in the Burdekin District in Cross Country Runs, Swimming and Athletics Carnivals.
