Interschool Sport

Students at Meridan State College have a broad range of opportunities to participate in sporting competitions against other schools and against each other in Community (eg. Bradman, Freeman, Rafter and O'Neill) Intra-School Sport.

During the school year students in Year 6 have the opportunity to be a part of interschool sport held during school curriculum time.  Transport to and from venues is via bus from the College, but parents are more than welcome to attend. 

Year 6 interschool sport is held during Term 3 with all students attending.  Students play on four Friday’s throughout the Term against other local primary schools from the Caloundra Coastal District. 
Student choose to be involved in either:
·         Netball (girls)
·         Soccer (boys)
·         Rugby League (boys)
·         Oztag (boys & girls)
·         Basketball (boys & girls)
Year 9 sport is integrated into the Health and Physical Education program and is ongoing across the year. 
All students participate as part of the required core HPE course, and are assessed on their performance across four physical activities.
Class teams undertake training to develop skills and strategies during the first 4 weeks of term. Classes then undertake a 6-week round-robin competition against other HPE classes each Tuesday afternoon during Session 4. 
Throughout the year classes rotate through four different activities specifically designed to enhance basic skills such as throwing, passing, catching and kicking, as well as key sporting components such as coordination, spatial awareness and reading play.
Activities include:    
·         Bounsketball
·         Street Hockey
·         Soccer
·         Ultimate Gaelic Vortex


Meridan SC will not be participating in the Coastal District Interschool Sport competition this year.  In order to build the consistency and quality of this competition, the district has had to introduce some conditions.  We are not in a position to meet these conditions for 2020 due to student participation rates and current curriculum program structure (to meet the Australian Curriculum expectations).  We seek to continue building our college and sport culture through our "Meridan Marlins" and the Developing Excellence Programs​.  These programs will continue to provide a range og quality Interschool Sport opportunities for students in years 7-12.  In addition to this we are seeking new ways to build community spirit and promote wellbeing through physical activity.
