With a strong importance on “Community” at Maroochydore State School, our sports days are fun and always full of spirit. 
Maroochydore State School is very actively involved in school sport.  With several carnivals and events occurring throughout the year, there is always a sport for everyone to participate in. 


Training begins early in the year.  As all students across the school participate in our annual Athletics Carnival towards the end of term two.  The carnival is usually run over two days with the focus of these events are participation rather than competition.
