Annual Sport Events
There are three major House Carnivals conducted throughout the year; Swimming (The Mary Murray Cup), Cross Country and Athletics (Fr Kevin King Cup). These sports activities have an educational benefit for all students and serve to develop their determination, physical skills and co-ordination, as well as their sense of belonging, house spirit and co-operation with staff and peers. These carnivals cater for all students through incorporating both competitive and non competitive (novelty) activities. They also serve as a process for selection in the Colleges' representative teams in these sports.
Associated Catholic Colleges (ACC) Carnivals
The College is a member of the Associated and Catholic Colleges (ACC) association. The ACC was first formed in 1937 by the Principals of CBC Highgate, Fremantle and St Patrick's School, Perth.

Significantly, membership has extended to Anglican, Baptist, Uniting Church, Jewish and non-denominational school systems.
