Sports Carnivals

Each year we hold Cross Country, Swimming and Athletics Carnivals for ALL Children. The emphasis is on participation rather than winning. Our school has two sporting teams, THOMSON PELICANS (blue) and KENNEDY KANGAROOS (yellow). Children are allocated to a House on their enrolment.

Trophies are awarded for the winning team and trophies and medallions to the Age Champions and runner-up for girl and boy athletes in age groups from 9-13yrs.

Instrumental Music

Instrumental music lessons are compulsory for all students in year 4, and optional for students in years 5 and 6. Available instruments are guitar, keyboard, trumpet, clarinet, violin and flute. These lessons are conducted via Zoom in partnership through The Cathedral College, Rockhampton.

District Sports Carnivals

Students from Our Lady’s have the opportunity to participate in individual and team sport trials within the Central West.  The CW District Sport trial calendar runs throughout the year and provides opportunities for students to progress into North West teams and Queensland State teams. 

Current key sports in which students participate in are: netball, swimming, athletics, soccer, rugby league, touch football and cricket.

Camps / Educational Tours

Educational tours are encouraged by the school after instigation by individual teachers.

It is the usual practice that Grade 5 and 6 children will embark upon a camp during the year.

All educational tours have to be approved by the Principal with parental consent to be obtained. Costs will always be kept to a minimum and no child will be excluded from an excursion because of an inability to pay the costs.

All children and parents will be made aware of the expectations placed upon the children as preconditions of their participation on the trip.
