Centenary SHS is a school that prides itself on its commitment to quality sporting competitions and opportunities for all. This comes from a deeply held belief that physical activity is essential for the physical, social and emotional well-being of our students.


As such, there are many opportunities for students to become involved in sport here at Centenary SHS. They are:

School Carnivals/District Carnivals

Centenary SHS runs Swimming Trials, Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals annually.  During these carnivals, students from all age groups can compete in their houses for points that go toward the Champion House Shield. Students may earn selection in the school team to compete at the District Carnivals through their competition and training performance.

Representative Pathway
Students have an opportunity to trial for selection in district, regional, state, and even national teams, in a wide range of sports.  The first step in this process is trials for the West Brisbane District Team.  Students will be invited to attend trials after school to try and gain selection in the district team.  If successful, they then go to regional trials where they trial for selection in a Met West Regional team.  If selected in the Regional team they can go onto State and National trials.  All common sports are catered for in this pathway and the age groups are 10 to 12 years, 13 to 15 years and 16 to 19 years. For upcoming trial dates, students must listen to sports notices on Assembly and in HG, check the Sports Calendar on the school website (see the column to the right), check the Sports Notice Board and then contact the Sport Director for relevant forms.

Inter-School Sport/Gala Days/Met Finals
Centenary SHS will be continuing to participate in the West Brisbane District Interschool sport competition this year.  There are various gala days throughout the year and dates can be obtained from the sporting calendar.  Teams will compete for the title of District Premiers in each sport and then the premier teams will progress onto the Metropolitan Finals series against other winning schools from across Brisbane.
These pathways exist in an attempt to provide a wide range of sporting options for those students interested in sport. If you would like further information about any of these, please contact the School Sports Director, Mrs Tamara Nasali at
