Sport is an integral part of the school curriculum. Physical education is compulsory in the middle phase and sport options are offered to senior students. Sport is viewed as being important in the holistic development of our students, with the focus being participation and opportunity rather than elitism.
The school has four sporting houses:
Bunya - Bonyi (yellow and black)
Kurrajong - Gurung Gurung (blue and white)
Myall - Mamar (red and black)
Wilga - Wulu (green and white)
The swimming carnival and athletics carnival allow students to participate as a member of their house. For serious athletes, an age championship is conducted at each of the carnivals.
Students are also encourage to participate in a wide range of inter-school competitions including touch football, volleyball, rugby league, netball, cricket, soccer and tennis. Students wanting to represent the school district or region can do so via Darling Downs regional teams. Most summer and winter sports are catered for.
Darling Downs School Sport levies can be paid via their website, which also includes information about dates and venues.
The school's synthetic multi-purpose courts provide an excellent teaching/learning space. This, along with well-maintained ovals, ensured that students are catered for well. Swimming is conducted at the Bunya Campus pool and Dalby Aquatic Centre. The school also makes use of the Dalby PCYC for indoor sports.
Dalby State High School provides students with the opportunity to participate in sport as an important part of social development, as well as challenging students to achieve through hard work and commitment.
