Sport in 2018


Sport in 2018


This term there will be a number of sporting opportunities for students at Toolooa State High School to engage in. These sporting opportunities will be advertised through our student notices in form classes, in our school newsletter and through the Port Curtis Facebook page. If you are interested in knowing what representative sports are coming up over the next month please read below:

 If your son or daughter is interested in attending any of the upcoming Port Curtis trials please get them to see Mr Miller in the PE staffroom for the necessary paperwork. I look forward to seeing a number of our students participating in these sporting events. 
School Swimming Carnival
Aside from representative sports, we also have our annual school swimming carnival coming up on Thursday, 15th February. This is a whole school event held at the Gladstone Aquatic Centre during our regular school day. It is always a fun, active day in which students are able to compete in a number of swimming events. Please keep sun safety in mind when preparing for the event. Students should wear sun safe attire including hat and shirt between events. A water bottle is also strongly recommended. I’m sure this will be another successful event this year! 
Sports Person of the Year
At the end of the year we hold our annual sports awards evening. We take this time to recognise the sporting achievements of our students during the year. The most prestigious award distributed on the night is the Sports Person of the Year. This award is given out to the Junior (Yr7-9) and Senior (Yr10-12) student that has achieved the most in the sporting arena throughout the year. The table to the right indicates the Points system used to determine the recipient of these prestigious awards: 
8 Ball Queensland Champion
During the Christmas holidays Billy Browne from Toolooa State High School competed at the Australian Eight-Ball Championships in Adelaide. He was one of nine selected to represent Queensland against the other Australian States. Following on from his success at the U15 Queensland Championships (which he won!), he was once again successful winning 10 of 12 of his matches to help his Queensland team win the Australian Championships. This is a fantastic achievement for anyone let alone someone thirteen years of age.  
Congratulations Billy!
