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

Our students also participate in a large number of various sporting carnivals throughout the year including Head of the River Regatta, Touch All Schools Championships, Fraser Coast Rugby 7's, Queensland Independent Secondary Schools Netball Carnival and Confraternity Rugby League.

Shalom Rowing

Rowing is the ultimate team and individual sport that challenges you physically and mentally. Rowing teachers’ valuable life and interpersonal skills such as teamwork, communication, relationships, leadership, commitment etc on and off the water. Rowing is a unique sport that is only offered in high school.

The Rowing season runs for February to September with numerous local regattas at Bucca and regional regattas at Rockhampton or Wyaralong available. Training sessions are run on the Burnett River, from the Bundaberg Rowing Club (BRC) Shed in Quay Street. Training times vary depending on the coach’s availability.

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 affiliated with Rowing Queensland Inc (RQ) and operates under the guidance of the Shalom Parents and Friends Association (P&F). Shalom Rowing does not have its own rowing facility. As such, Shalom Rowers, pay a Membership Fee, directly to the BRC and this allows them use of its facilities and rowing resources at the BRC Shed in Quay Street, and at the Bucca Rowing complex and participation in local school regattas.

Request to be a member of the Shalom Rowing Facebook Group to stay up to date.
