Sport is an important part of Whitsunday Christian College. Our Physical Education program provides opportunity, variety, fun and fitness in a supportive environment with quality facilities. Our College facilities include a football and soccer fields, grass running track, multi-purpose basketball/netball/tennis court, and an undercover multipurpose basketball/netball/volleyball court. The College also uses local community facilities including squash courts, gymnasiums, pools, golf clubs, a PCYC, the Whitsunday Sports Park and the ocean for sailing, stand up paddle board and fishing.
Students from Prep to Year 12 participate in three sporting carnivals annually, including: Cross Country, late Term 1, Swimming, early Term 2 for Secondary and late Term 3 for Primary and Athletics, early Term 3. These carnivals provide opportunity for all students to compete or simply participate whilst enjoying a ‘carnival’ atmosphere. Students from Year 5 and up can qualify for Proserpine and Whitsunday district teams with strong performances. Prep to Year 6 also participate in specialised swimming programs prior to the swimming carnival.
Timetabled sport is part of the school curriculum and is set up for development, practice and mastery of skills.
Students have various opportunities during the year to represent our College in a variety of sports under the Proserpine sub-district, Whitsunday District and North Queensland School Sports Association. Funding assistance available if regional representation is reached for students.
There are two more pathways that allow students to be involved in extra sport at Whitsunday Christian College.
The first is participating in a school sports team that has been nominated for a competition either locally or outside the district. These sports have been Soccer, Lower Secondary Touch Football, Basketball, Netball as well as Primary and Secondary AFL. As our school continues to grow, we are looking to enter more school teams into local, regional and statewide competitions. We believe as a College that every student needs the opportunity to flourish and want to see our students succeed on the sporting scene.
After-school sport is the second way students can be involved in participating in extra sporting activities. Primary students are involved in this on a Monday afternoon from 3.00 pm -4.00 pm, and Secondary students on a Wednesday afternoon from 3.00pm – 4.00pm. These times are devoted towards training sporting teams or individuals for their chosen sport or events.
