Sport

GCC Sport continues to meet and exceed the growing needs of our students, and provides competitive opportunities for students who aspire to compete for enjoyment and at a higher level in a variety of sports.

Facilities

GCC’s first oval accommodates a 250m athletics track. The oval also has a beach volleyball pit, a synthetic cricket pitch, two cricket nets, multi-purpose ball courts for netball, basketball and volleyball, a reduced soccer pitch and touch football pitch.  A second oval is due for completion early 2018.

There is also an undercover area which caters for Futsal, full-court basketball, volleyball, table tennis and badminton. The College has access to Beerwah Sports Ground (being an affiliate member and just across the road) and the Beerwah Swimming Pool (also just across the road).

Primary Physical Education Program

Primary students have a one-hour Physical Education lesson each week with a specialist Sports Teacher. This is where students learn and practice the basics of catching, striking, offensive and defensive skills. They apply and use these skills in a wide variety of game situations and have opportunity to compete at different levels, e.g. intraclass, interclass and in outside competitions. The skills and fitness required to compete in swimming, cross country and athletic carnivals are also focussed on during PE lessons.
