Sports

Students at Home Hill State High School have the opportunity to participate in physical activity at many levels. At school level all students in years 7, 8, 9 and 10  attend core HPE classes allowing them to experience a variety of games, sports and other physical activities, including Aquatics, Touch, Dance, Orienteering, Athletics  and Netball.  HPE is also an elective subject in Year 10. 

An active lifestyle is also encouraged during lunch times with the Senior Sports Committee, run by Year 12 students and supervised by staff, issuing sports equipment to students and organising sporting competitions during recess.  An inter-form Cricket Competition is the highlight of the final week of the year for Year 9 students.

Seniors selected as House Captains have a leadership role during the annual Inter-house Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals where every member of the house is encouraged to participate and support his/her house. 2015 saw the introduction of Junior House Captains who will assist their senior counterparts on carnival days.

As a member of the Burdekin Secondary School Sports Association, Home Hill High enables its students to compete as representatives of the school at Burdekin Inter-school Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals as well as a variety of inter-school competitions in sports such as Netball, Rugby League, Soccer, Touch, Cricket, Volleyball and Softball.  Further opportunities to experience sports such as Soccer and Netball are provided through the school’s participation in the Bill Turner Cup and the Vicky Wilson Cup respectively.

Students also have the opportunity to represent the Burdekin at district level in all sports offered by the North Queensland Secondary School Sports Association and, if successful they can represent the Northern region, Queensland and Australia.

The sporting achievements of Home Hill State High School students at school, district and regional level are recognised at the Sports Awards Night held in term four of each year.
