HPE and Sport

Class Health and Physical Education lessons

At Highland Reserve State School students receive a weekly lesson with one of our two HPE teachers, Mr Travers and Mrs Barker. The teachers engage students in a range of skill development and sports related programs to enhance their fitness, knowledge, sportsmanship and skills.  


 Gala Days

Each term, our Year 4 to 6 students engage in a Gala Day where they compete against students from neighbouring schools in a range of sports. These include:

  • Netball
  • Soccer
  • Athletics
  • AFL
  • Touch Football

 School Carnivals

Highland Reserve State School holds the following Carnivals for students to compete in throughout the school year:

  •  Cross Country (Term 1): Prep to Year 6
  •  Athletics (Term 2): Prep to Year 6
  •  Swimming (Term 4): Year 4 to Year 6 

 School Sporting Houses
The school is divided into three Sports Houses – Kurrungal, Guanaba and Wongawallan.

Children are allocated to Houses for sporting competitions when they start at Highland Reserve. Every effort is made to keep families in the one house.
