Sport

Immanuel Old Scholars’ sporting achievements

Participation in sport is an integral part of life at Immanuel. Sport unites students by providing shared opportunities for recreation, physical fitness, developing friendships and instilling values such as working together for a common goal.

Students are encouraged to participate to the best of their ability and to display true sportsmanship. The social enjoyment and skill development aspects are encouraged rather than the ‘win at all costs’ attitude. How you play the game is important at Immanuel.

Immanuel is a member of a number of sports associations which allows our students to represent the College in a wide variety of local, regional and state sporting competitions. These include:

The three-tiered College sports program includes:

  • Interhouse Sports and Activities
  • Interschool Sports Association (Years 4-6)
  • Immanuel Sports Clubs.

The program is overseen by two staff members:

Mr Michael Johnson (P – 7 Sports Coordinator)

Mr Craig Harris (Head of Sport Years 8-12)

Interhouse Sports and Activities

Immanuel has a proud history of a strong and enthusiastic house system with all students in one of four houses: Bribie, Fraser, Moreton or Stradbroke.

Students in Years 7-12 gather for house meetings under the leadership of House Coordinators and Student House Captains to organise house activities, acknowledge student achievement and develop a sense of pride in their house.

The House activities program includes:

  • Interhouse Swimming
  • Interhouse Cross Country
  • Interhouse Athletics
  • Interhouse Recreational Sports.

In the recreational sports program, students participate in a range of activities throughout the year including indoor soccer (futsal), basketball, table tennis and beach volleyball to name a few.

Interschool Sports Association (Years 4-6)

Immanuel is a foundation member of the SCISSA group of schools (Sunshine Coast Independent School Sports Association). More recently, this group has been known as the Independent Zone. Through our involvement in SCISSA, students participate in interschool sports carnivals such as swimming, cross country and athletics.

Major events in the SCISSA calendar are:

  • SCISSA Primary Swimming Carnival
  • SCISSA Secondary Swimming Carnival
  • SCISSA Primary Cross Country Carnival
  • SCISSA Secondary Cross Country Carnival
  • SCISSA Primary Athletics Carnival
  • SCISSA Secondary Athletics Carnival

Another feature of this group of schools is to provide a clear pathway for Immanuel students to train for district, regional and state representative teams in a broad range of individual and team sports.

Secondary District trials are usually conducted over three separate days during February, March and May and there are a wide range of sports including:
