Sport at Redlynch State College

Redlynch State College uses a house system to coordinate all of its 3 major interhouse sporting competitions. These competitions include our annual Swimming Carnival (Secondary Campus), Cross Country (Primary & Secondary Campuses) and Athletics Carnival (Primary & Secondary Campuses).

New students to the school are randomly assigned to one of four house groups. Younger siblings are put into the same house as their elder siblings.

These 4 houses are named after water features found in the nearby Freshwater Creek.


Rapids - Red


Falls – Gold


 Cascades - Green


 Torrents - Blue

Regional, State and Australian Representation 

Through the School Sport system, students are provided with the opportunity to represent their district (Barron River and Trinity Coast North), region (Peninsula), Queensland and Australia. Students who gain selection in representative teams are recognised formally through our white, half blue and full blue awards at our Excellence in Sports Dinner.

Students successful in making a Barron River or TCN team may represent their district at the Peninsula Region Championships/Trials.
