Sport is seen as an integral part of the curriculum at Shalom as it affects positively the total physical, moral and social development of our students. The focus of the College sports program is participation where every effort is made to ensure that sport is a satisfying and enjoyable experience for all students.
Through involvement in sport our students give a commitment and loyalty to the team and team demands; work cooperatively with others towards team goals; strive at all times to achieve and to give of their optimum performance. Students are taught to show respect for others, themselves, rules and the spirit in which competition is held by exhibiting exemplary sportsmanship at all times.
Inter-house sporting competitions involve all students in Swimming, Athletics and Cross-Country. Inter-school sporting competitions involve a large number of students representing the College in a variety of sports outside school hours. Currently, Shalom College is a member of the Bundaberg and District Secondary School Sport Association. For more infomation see the Bundaberg District School Sport Website www.bundyschoolsport.com
Our students also participate in a large number of various sporting carnivals throughout the year including Head of the River Regatta, All Schools Volleyball, Touch All Schools Championships, Fraser Coast Rugby 7's, Queensland Independent Secondary Schools Netball Carnival and Confraternity Rugby League.
Shalom Rowing was established in 1989 by a group of rowing enthusiasts eager to pass on their passion for the sport to the students of Shalom College. Shalom Rowing is directly affiliated with Rowing Queensland Inc (RQ) as an independent School Rowing Association. Rowing Queensland controls and administers the sport of rowing in Queensland. Shalom Rowing operates in accordance with the rules and regulations of Rowing Queensland. As a parent and supporters organisation, Shalom Rowing operates under the auspices of the Shalom Parents and Friends Association (P&F) and under the direction of Shalom College Rowing Co-ordinator. Shalom Rowing is also represented on the Bundaberg District Secondary Schools Sports Association (BDSSSA) Rowing Sub-committee. Shalom Rowing does not have its own rowing facility. As such, the fees paid by Shalom Rowers, with the exception of a Membership Fee, are directly forwarded to Bundaberg Rowing Club. These fees provide Shalom Rowers with automatic membership of Bundaberg Rowing Club, and the use of its facilities and rowing resources at the BRC Shed in Quay Street, and at the Bucca Rowing complex.
