Welcome to Sport
Sport is an integral component of the holistic development of students at Redlands College. We offer a range of sporting opportunities to enable our students to find physical activities they enjoy and wish to pursue for life.
There are a number of house competitions during the year, with the students competing in athletics, cross country and swimming. Students compete in four Houses:
The houses are named after the first Europeans to enter the Redlands District. They were timber cutters and demonstrated true pioneering qualities as they entered an unknown district without the support of civilised infrastructure. We can aspire to these qualities of resourcefulness, courage, perseverance and enterprise.
"Previous years has seen Sport playing a big part of the College yearly calendar, including the sport carnivals, interschool sport and most importantly the House competitions during break times. However, with the Covid-19 season we have found ourselves in, the majority of 2020 has really made the sporting platform a limited one.
Although Covid-19 has disrupted the sporting community we need to continue to be making the most out of what we have to come. Some ideas of ways to stay active can be going for a walk to your local park or to a waterfront with a group of friends. If some people are feeling adventurous we live in the perfect area for a bush walk or hike in the many mountains and national parks on the Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast, my favourite would be Springbrook National Park.
Many of us have taken every opportunity to be involved in interschool sport and Access Sports which is only available to the Seniors at Redlands College. The interaction and eagerness have been great to see.
I felt the anticipation build in the most recent tournament, the Senior Schools Cup Volleyball where we saw a large number of students putting in the effort for training and competing ensuring we came home with many wins.
The Matt Stanley match had another amazing outcome this year with more students than I have seen getting amongst the rivalry between year 11s and 12s. Keep putting in the effort for Term 4 and take every opportunity there is possible and look forward to the things to come."

Redlands College is forming partnerships with local sports clubs. We encourage our students to involve themselves in competitions held outside school hours. As we believe each family should have the freedom to use their leisure time as they wish, we do not participate in inter-school Saturday sporting competitions.
