I am aware that our co-ordinator of Sport, Mrs Murphy, wrote to parents in November with a list of all of the CCPS Osprey sports teams and co-curricular activities available for our students. These included Cross-country Running, Swimming, Tennis, Golf, Basketball, Athletics, Water Polo, Netball, Oztag, Gymnastics, Volleyball, Touch Football, Futsal, Rugby Union, Debating, Chess, Drama/Musical, Music, Outdoor Education, Community Service, and Cricket. Aligned with this extensive set of activities, a study of schools’ co-curricular programs and students’ involvements that complemented their academic results was conducted in south-eastern Queensland Independent Schools. In that survey group of 431 students, females averaged 1,043 hours and males averaged 1,142 hours of co-curricular involvement during five years in school Years 8 to 12. The OP means for the survey group were 9.2 for females and 8.8 for males.
