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
Moggill State School is a member of the Northern Eagles Schools Sport District which is affiliated with the Met West School Sport Region and QLD School Sport.
Students in Years 5 and 6 participate in the Northern Eagles Inter-school Sport winter and summer seasons.

Moggill State School aims to participate in at least three of the sports on offer in each of the seasons. Participation in these competitions allows students the opportunity to represent their school whilst learning valuable skills in teamwork and sportsmanship.
Students aged 10 – 12 Years have the opportunity to participate in school-based trials in a range of sports to determine their eligibility to enter the QLD School Sport Representative Pathway. The pathway consists of Northern Eagles Trials, Met West Regional Trials, QLD State Trials and National Trials. Students who demonstrate above average ability in a particular sport are invited to attend the corresponding Northern Eagles Trial and have the opportunity to advance through the pathway. A calendar of events is included on this website.
Students 9- 12 yrs participate in three major Inter-House sporting competitions during the year. These include Cross Country in Term 1, Athletics in Term 2 and swimming in Term 4. Students have the opportunity to develop their skills in these areas during Physical Education lessons and lunch time or outside school hours training sessions. The main focus of these events is to encourage house spirit and participation of all students. Students aged 10 – 12 yrs who perform at the highest level in their events are invited to join the Moggill State School team to compete in the Northern Eagles Trials.
