Sport is a major part of the school curriculum as it plays an integral role in the life of all students at Everton Park State High School. All students are actively engaged in sport and are provided with numerous sporting opportunities. The main
sporting opportunities provided to students are those derived through participation in School and Interschool Carnivals and State Carnivals

Sports Carnivals
The three major carnivals at school include Swimming, Cross Country, and Athletics. All students are encouraged to compete and participate in a ‘personal best’ culture and an atmosphere where getting involved and belonging are promoted. Achieving at school carnivals qualifies students to compete for regional, state, and national selection.

  • Respect the rights of all players in the opposing team 
Show a commitment to the sport or activity. 
  • Be actively involved in the activity at all times. If unable to participate, students must have a note outlining the reasons for their inability to participate. If possible these students are expected to assist in the activity in some way. This may include scoring or preparations of the activity.

Interschool Sports Program
Students who are selected for the interschool teams will travel on a bus to various venues located in the Metropolitan North Region. 
 
Students selected for interschool teams are required to wear the correct full sports or team uniform for that sport. Involvement in sport at outside venues may be restricted by inappropriate behaviour/conduct by the student. 
 
Intra-school Sport Program
Students who are not selected for the interschool sporting teams will be involved in the intra-school sport program. The students involved in this program will be involved in sporting options at school and outside of school. These students may need to travel by foot to venues located in close vicinity of the school. Some options may incur an additional cost to students. 
 
Students are required to wear the correct full sports or team uniform for that sport. 
 
School Houses
Students are allocated to “houses” for school carnivals and
intra-school activities. These houses include: 
 
RUSH House (Purple and Red) in honour of Geoffrey Rush, internationally acclaimed actor. 
 

MARTIN House (Green and Gold) in honour of Michelle and Rodney Martin World Squash Champions.
