Sport at Redlynch State College

Redlynch State College uses a House system to coordinate all of its 3 major interhouse sporting competitions. These competitions are the Swimming Carnival (Year 7-12), Cross Country (P-12) and Athletics Carnival (P-12).

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

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