Home of Marty and the mighty Marlins – “Fear the Fish”
The sporting program at Meridan State College is built on a basis of ‘success through pride and participation’. All students are encouraged to participate, as much for their friends and their school, as for themselves.
Our athletes are guided by the Marlin Creed, which outlines three core tenants that extend beyond the sporting field and should be displayed in all areas of school life.
1. CONDUCT YOURSELF WITH HONOUR
The result is never as important as how you conduct yourself as a player – it shows who you are as a person
2. PLAY TO WIN
Play to win; understand you cannot win all the time; learn from your defeats
3. NEVER GIVE UP
Try your best always and in all ways!
Students must show ongoing commitment to the Marlin Creed in their daily actions if they are to retain their place in our sporting programs.
Meridan has traditionally focused on building a sporting culture through its commitment to four pillar sports, these being Basketball, Netball, Oztag and Volleyball. Where enough interest in other sports exist then specific programs are developed to cater for cohorts as they move through the College. Meridan provides all the normal Queensland School Sport representative opportunities through our association with the Coastal District and Sunshine Coast School Sport organisations.
Meridan takes a holistic approach to student development, with a balanced emphasis on academic, cultural and sporting success. Through this approach, we are able to cater for the needs of elite state and national athletes who require a flexible approach to maintain academic and sporting success.
Lead by our mascot, Marty the Marlin – Meridan students have many opportunities to be involved in College Sport.
