Physical activity

 

Camp Hill State Infants and Primary School has a long and strong sporting tradition. Our school grounds have extensive facilities that enable our students to be active participants in a diverse range of physical activity.

All students are encouraged to participate in this dynamic program. The school Physical Education program is diverse and includes:

  • Swimming;
  • lifesaving;
  • athletics;
  • Flippa Ball;
  • and a variety of skills and games in modified sports such as volleyball, cricket and soccer.
 

Sports Carnivals

 

Students at Camp Hill SIPS compete in a variety of school sporting carnivals. The following carnivals are enjoyed annually by students, with the P-2 junior carnivals operating on separate days to the Yr3-6 senior carnivals:

  • Cross country carnival;
  • Athletics carnival;
  • Ball games carnival;
  • Swimming carnival.

 

Students in the Years 3-6 senior campus, are allocated to one of three sports houses. This promotes a healthy team and group spirit. The house names and origins are:

McIlwraith (yellow) after Sir Thomas McIlwraith (1835-1900) - former Premier of QLD
Moore (green) after Arthur Edward Moore (1876-1963) - former Premier of QLD
Wilson (blue) after Sir Leslie Orme Wilson (1876-1955) - former Governor of QLD
 
House captains and vice captains, two for each house, are elected by grade peers at the beginning of each school year. 
 
All of our events are well supported by families and friends and cater for all needs of children.
