Interschool Sports

Toowoomba Christian College participates in the local Friday afternoon Primary School Interschool Sport competition. Students in Year 5 and 6 have the opportunity to participate against team from other schools around Toowoomba. Primary Interschool Sport runs in Term 1, 3 and 4. In Term 2 all schools run their own athletics training to prepare students for their Athletics carnivals.

The Interschool Sporting competition is designed to allow students to gain experience participating in a variety of different sports and teams. The focus is on allowing students to have a go and encouraging involvement. Boy's and Girl's sports include; T-Ball, Softball, Football (Soccer) and Touch Football while the girls also have the option of playing Netball.

School Carnivals

Both the primary and secondary school hold swimming, cross country and athletic carnivals each year.

Houses

In 2013, the College introduced four new sporting houses to replace the previous two (Cunningham and Oxley). The four houses were named after Christians who have shown great commitment to God as they have pursued a certain area of service to God and their fellow man, in keeping with the College’s motto “Pro Ductibus Pro Patriae” which means “for leadership and for country”.

In Mark Chapter 12, we read an account of Jesus being asked to identify which of the commandments is the most important. Jesus’s reply: “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

The four houses have been named after Christians who actively lived out loving their neighbours as themselves and who each exemplified loving the Lord with all of their heart, soul, mind and strength.
