Sports

Kedron State High School offers a wide variety of sporting opportunities to our students throughout their school life from Years 7 to 12. Since Kedron's establishment in 1956, sport has been an important and integral part of the tradition of our school and complements the HPE program. The Kedron State High School Indoor Sports Centre opened in 2010, has boosted the facilities for all- weather sports activities. The Centre has two full size basketball courts and is line-marked for multiple sports.

Year 7

Year 7 students participate in an inter-house competition that promotes skill development, team work and participation. The program exposes students to many of the sports that they will have the opportunity to play in future inter-school competitions. In addition, this time is used to practice athletics events in the lead up to the school inter-house athletics carnival.

Inter-house sport

The inter-house carnivals, swimming, cross-county and athletics are organised on a house basis. Named after early governors of Queensland, the houses - Bowen, Griffith, Lutwyche and Wickham maintain a strong but friendly rivalry throughout the year.
  • Swimming Carnival. This is a whole day event held at the Valley Pool for the entire school with the emphasis on participation.
  • Cross-Country. Kedron is fortunate in having a Cross-Country course which is also used for the District, Region and State competitions.
  • Athletics Carnival. Kedron's own athletic track (originally built on a well drained horse racing circuit) is regularly used by the local primary schools and remains the venue for our traditional House, Track and Field Carnival.
