Sporting programs

House system

On enrolment children are allocated to one of four houses.

House names have been chosen from historic sites around Townsville and a colour is associated with each house.

Students compete for their ‘house' in two major events for sporting achievement. These are the interhouse swimming carnival, held at an outside pool, held early in term 1 and the interhouse athletics carnival, which is held on our school ovals early in term 3.

From these interhouse competitions, students are selected from achieved results to represent the school in the interschool competitions for both swimming and track and field athletics. Students are also eligible to nominate for the interschool cross country competition.

The four houses are:

  • Castle purple
  • Magnetic yellow
  • Cleveland red
  • Ross green

Interschool sport

The school is a member of the Townsville primary school sports and students from years 5 and 6 are offered the opportunity to participate in the inter-school competitions on a Friday. These competitions are held over three rotations throughout the year and cover sports such as:

  • rotation 1 hockey, netball and rugby league
  • rotation 2 tennis, touch, football and rugby union
  • rotation 3 Australian rules, softball, cricket and basketball

The senior students also participate in the ARL development cup, Warren Pitt rugby league competition and the northern region primary school netball cup.

The school endorses the Department of Education's gender equity in sport policy and supports the selection of girls, on the basis of merit, in traditionally boys' sports.
