All students are given the opportunity to participate in Interschool Sport. Students who choose not to participate are placed into a tutorial where they can catch up on their school work or a recreational sport group.
All students are given the opportunity for selection in District or Regional teams through participation in the school’s annual Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics Carnival. In addition, students can also trial for selection in District or Regional teams across a wide variety of sporting pursuits. Our school also participates in some state-wide sporting competitions such as the Golden Glove Softball competition, Soccer and Futsal.
Senior & Junior dance troupes
Senior and Junior Dance Troupes rehearse once a week building a repertoire in a variety of styles for public and school performances. Students have opportunities to take on leadership roles in contributing their own choreography for the groups. Participation in Dance Troupe benefits students’ fitness, confidence, discipline, interpersonal skills, creativity and persistence.
Marching Drums is a dynamic percussion ensemble featuring snares, quads and bass drums. Students learn technically advanced repertoire as well as creating their own pieces featuring complex choreographed movements.
The Concert Band rehearses twice a week and performs weekly on assembly, at school functions, competitions and throughout the community.
Budding actors are given
ample opportunities to hone their Thespian skills in the Deception Bay SHS
Drama Troupe. These actors take on the lead roles in MADDFest and perform
a variety of pieces for a variety of audiences.
MADD (Music, Art, Drama, Dance) Fest is a unique Deception Bay SHS production incorporating music, art, dance and drama. This is a biennial event on our school calendar and includes a MADDFeast performance where audience members enjoy the show while tucking in to a delicious 3 course meal prepared and served by our very own Hospitality students.
Performing Arts tour
In 2015 our school Performing Arts students took their talents on the road to showcase their skills on a tour of the Gold Coast. This is now a biennial event (alternate year to MADD Fest) on our school calendar.
