Sport

Beaudesert State High School is proud of its sporting traditions and success.  From Year 8 students proudly winning a lunchtime competition to our Australian representatives, our sport program caters for all.

Recreation activities allow students to develop a lifelong appreciation of the need to include activity in their daily lives.  From walking to yoga to skateboarding, every student’s interests are covered. These are run during timetabled sport lessons.

School sport involves competing against other teams in traditional sports such as soccer, basketball or team handball.  These are run during timetabled sport lessons and also organized at lunch times by the Year 12 Sports Committee.

The sports excellence program allows students to represent the school, district, South Coast, Queensland and Australia.   Students receive quality coaching from our teachers and participate in selected competitions both in and out of school time.  In 2014, our focus will be on Athletics, Touch Football, Basketball, Netball, Rugby League, Cricket, Futsal and Triathlon.

Culture and the Arts

Beaudesert State High School offers a comprehensive cultural/arts program. It includes:

Instrumental Music: Our instrumental program is the best in the Logan/Beaudesert District. Students elect to attend weekly lessons in woodwind, brass, percussion or strings. They are then expected to participate in Concert Band or Stage Band. Performances at local events, competitions and official school occasions instill confidence and encourage improvement. The school stage band is highly regarded within South East Queensland and a number of students involved in our instrumental program have gained places in the State Honours Band and Ministers Awards of Excellence (MOST). Each ensemble does a number of performances a year and our Stage Band go on tour every second year.

Creative Generation, State Schools Onstage: Since 2006 we have participated in Education Queensland’s large scale combined performance. Students from Year 8 to 12 can audition in vocal, dance or instrumental. Selected students then attend rehearsals in Brisbane. In 2013 the Performance featured nearly 1400 students at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre and was aired on Channel Ten. Students gain a world of experience from this event.

Choreography Competition: Students with an interest in Dance can enter this lunch time competition in Term 4. Students are invited to create and perform their own dance. Winners in each category are invited to perform on Arts Night.

Japan Tour: Students who study Japanese have the opportunity every two years to travel to Japan to experience the language and culture of that country first-hand. Other extra- curricular activities include a restaurant trip and Japanese lunches.

Debating: Beaudesert State High School has a long history of successful debating teams. Students from all year levels can participate in Debating through either intra-school or inter- school competitions.  As members of a Debating Team, students develop skills in research, collaboration, presentation and confidence, as they work together in a team with fellow students and staff. The ENABLE Debating competition, an initiative of the ENABLE schools network of the greater Logan, Albert and Beaudesert Region, runs through Autumn and Winter. Our school won the Junior division of this competition in 2011 and 2012. Our senior debating team won this competition in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
