Moggill State School has a strong sporting tradition and prides itself on promoting participation, teamwork and sportsmanship. The school has excellent sporting facilities including a multi-purpose hall that allows activity to continue throughout all weather conditions. Students participate in weekly HPE lessons with a specialist HPE teacher. Lessons address a range of physical skills throughout the year with learning experiences designed for students to achieve success and develop a lasting positive attitude towards physical activity. The main focus in the lower school is the development of basic skills and movement patterns whilst in the upper school the focus shifts to exposing students to a broader range of physical activities and learning more advanced sports specific skills. External sporting groups are engaged in HPE lessons at various stages throughout the year to assist with students' skill development. These include QLD Tennis, AFL QLD, NRL, QLD Rugby, and QLD Baseball. Many of these sporting groups also offer outside school hours sporting programs for students of all ages on the school grounds.
During Term 1 and Term 4, students in Years 1 – 6 participate in swimming lessons as part of the HPE Program. Lessons are delivered by fully qualified staff at Bellbowrie Pool and the HPE Specialist. Students travel to and from the pool by bus. Payment and parental permission is required as per the invoice payment date, and covers the cost of pool entry, lessons and bus travel.
Inter-School Sport and Representative Pathways
West Akuna Friday Interschool Sport
Students in Years 5 and 6 have the opportunity to participate in Friday Interschool sport in the West Akuna District. This involves 13 schools. There are two, 5 week seasons of sport, one in each semester. Students in most cases will participate in two games each afternoon. In Semester 1, sports available to schools in the district competitions include Touch Football, Football, Netball and AFL. In Semester 2, sports available to schools in the district competitions include Flag Tag, Rugby League, Super 8 Cricket and Basketball. Schools individually determine which sports they will participate in. Interschool sport is for all students in Year 5 and 6 and we encourage maximum participation.
Northern Eagles 10 – 19 Representative School Sports District
There are 27 affiliated schools in the Northern Eagles District (10 – 19 Years) plus several non-affiliated schools. Students are able to trial to be selected in a district team. The selected District team will then trial at the Regional level – Metropolitan West. Ages for students are determined by the age they have turned by December 31 each year.
There are three major sport trials namely, Swimming, Cross Country and Track & Field. Students attend these trials based on results from our own school carnivals. There are maximum numbers that can be nominated and some of these are dependant upon attaining a qualifying standard.
There are a further fifteen sports available to 10 – 12 year old students to trial.
The process to attend the trials is as follows:
- The District Convener will send out trial notices for a sport to the schools.
- The trial is advertised at each school.
- Students displaying competence and the necessary skills in that sport are selected from a school. Names are forwarded to the District convener and students are given paperwork including the principal permission form.
- Parents fill out the paper work and return this to the school for the principal or appointed delegate to sign.
- Students receive the paperwork back to take to the trial. This must be handed to the district convener. NO PAPER WORK = NO PARTICIPATION AT THE TRIAL.
Please note that some sports are limited to a maximum number of nominations per school. Therefore it may be necessary to conduct a trial at school to select students to attend the district trial.
A student who is selected in a district team will have further paper work to complete to attend the Regional Trial.
For a full list of district, region and state trials please refer to the Northern Eagles tab under the Districts tab on the Metropolitan
West School Sport Website.
