Providing a range of co-curricular opportunities is important to us because we value each child’s individual skills and interests, and we want to give every opportunity for students to grow and further their potential.

Bethlehem College Ashfield offers comprehensive representative sporting opportunities for Year 7–12 through our affiliation with the sporting associations MCCS and CGSSSA. Metropolitan Combined Catholic Schools (MCCS) is an association that sees eight schools across both the Parramatta and Sydney Diocese compete against each other in weekly round robin competitions in a broad range of sports.

Additionally, we have an affiliation with the Catholic Girls Secondary Schools Sports Association (CGSSSA) which is the pathway the college uses for students to progress to NSWCCC, All Schools and Pacific Schools competitions. It is this affiliation that provides our students with the opportunity to represent the college at state and national levels.
