Student leadership

Our school is continually reviewing ways to broaden the opportunities for our students to participate and excel in leadership and team skills. Current roles for leadership include School captains, house captains, music captains and class captains.  Members of student council are drawn from various year levels and are responsible for the regular planning and conducting of many of our school’s events. They raise issues and concerns, suggest improvements, undertake a fundraising role for both school-based initiatives and for charities in the wider community and organise a variety of social and recreational activities for students.

InterSchool sport

Students from Years 4-7 are encouraged to participate in softball, hockey, netball, AFL, rugby league, basketball, touch football, soccer, cricket or tennis at an inter-school level. Students not participating in this activity take part in the Electives Program which introduces students to a range of recreational activities.

IntraSchool sport

Inter-house competitions in cross country, athletics and ball games are conducted annually during second and third term for children in Years 4-6. This presents an opportunity for students to earn points for their houses (Bradman, Fraser & Elliott) and also be selected to compete at District and State levels. Prep to Year 3 students have their own carnivals which are conducted on a non-competitive basis.

Choral and instrumental music

Ipswich Central State School strongly supports the arts and has a strong music program to reflect this. Students from Year 3-6 can participate in Junior and Senior Choirs.  Participation includes regular rehearsal times and involvement in concerts and eisteddfods throughout the school year. The Instrumental program is available to students in Year 3–6 subject to a selection process and due to availability of school instruments. An extension of the instrumental program is our String Orchestra and Concert band.

Outdoor Education/Camp Program

A fun, learning-oriented, outdoor education program enhances team building and leadership skills in our students. These programs range from 3 to 5 days and are implemented by a team of professional outdoor education experts. Our staff also provides  supervision and support. Previous camps have included Underwater World  (Mooloolaba), Camp Goodenough (Bilambil), Tallebudgera (Gold Coast) and Canberra.
