Sport

Pacific Lutheran College provides excellent sporting opportunities for students. Offering a wide range of sports, Pacific aims to develop fitness, a sense of personal wellbeing, physical prowess and confidence as well as instill a sense of enjoyment, commitment, sportsmanship, courage and resilience in their young sportsmen and women.

Students from all year levels (Prep – Year 12) participate in the College’s annual Athletics, Swimming and Cross Country carnivals. Competing for one of the College’s three houses – Bula, Mumba or Wira, students are given the opportunity to earn points towards the annual Foundation Cup while enjoying the friendly competition amongst their peers. Participation in District, Regional, National and Inter-Lutheran carnivals offers a higher level of competition for elite performers.

Prep – Year 3 students have the opportunity to participate in a number of sport development programs outside of school hours. These programs encourage participation and give students experience in a variety of different sports where they can learn basic skills and rules. Students of these ages also benefit from participation in the parent led PLC Soccer and Netball Clubs, which compete on Saturdays in community competitions.

Students in Years 4-12 participate in summer and winter team sports through Pacific’s membership with the Sunshine Coast Independent School Sports Association (SCISSA). Year 7-12 students also participate in a number of school and community based competitions through the week. Involvement in SCISSA sport for Year 4-6 students, which occurs within school hours, is compulsory. Students can proceed to regional, state and national representation in any school-based team through attendance at district trials.
