Excellence programs


Student leadership

Warrigal Road State School is continually reviewing ways to broaden the opportunities for our students to participate and excel in leadership and team skills. Current roles for leadership include School captains, house captains, music captains and class captains.  Members of student council are drawn from various year levels and are responsible for the regular planning and conducting of many of our school’s events. They raise issues and concerns, suggest improvements, undertake a fundraising role for both school-based initiatives and for charities in the wider community and organise a variety of social and recreational activities for students.

Gala Sport Days

Students in Year Five and Six are encouraged to participate in a variety of sports at an inter-school level.  Students will participate in three Gala Days per Semester.

During Semester One, students have the option of trialing for boys and girls Basketball, boys and girls Soccer, girls Softball and Tee ball and also boys Rugby League. During Semester Two, the sports on offer change to boys and girls Touch Football, boys Softball, girls Netball, boys and girls Cricket and also boys and girls AFL.

Students not participating in Gala Day activities take part in the Options Program which introduces students to a range of recreational activities.

Sports Days

Students in Year Four to Six participate in Inter-house Cross Country and Athletics competitions during the year. This presents as an opportunity for students to earn points for their sport houses and also be selected to compete at District, Regional and State levels. Prep to Year Three students have their own carnivals which are conducted on a non-competitive basis.

Representative Sport

Ten to twelve year old students also have the opportunity to trial for representative selection across a large range of sports. Each school in the Sunnybank District is encouraged to send a maximum of four students to any particular trial. The students must show a high level of skill to be considered for school selection to attend a District trial. Principal approval must also be given.

Representative sports include: Swimming, Athletics, Cross Country, Soccer, Basketball, AFL, Netball, Rugby League, Touch Football, Hockey, Softball, Tennis, Rugby Union, Squash and Golf.

Choral and instrumental music

Warrigal Road State School strongly supports the arts and has a strong music program to reflect this. Students from Year three-six can participate in Junior and Senior Choirs.  Participation includes regular rehearsal times and involvement in concerts and eisteddfods throughout the school year. The Instrumental program is available to students in Year three–six subject to a selection process and due to availability of school instruments. An extension of the instrumental program is our String Orchestra and Concert bands.

Outdoor Education/Camp Program

A fun, learning-oriented, outdoor education program enhances team building and leadership skills in our students. These programs range from three to five days and are implemented by a team of professional outdoor education experts. Our staff also provides  supervision and support.
