Broadwater Regional Sport

Benowa SHS is part of the Broadwater district. Students must trial at Broadwater if they wish to be considered at the South Coast trial. They must register with the Director of Sport prior to the nomination date listed on the Student Notices. Sports are advertised to students using the Sports Noticeboard (outside the sports hall), the Student notices (electronic) and the website (see right for Broadwater Calendar).  If they are unable to attend the Broadwater trial, students can apply for an exemption. Please refer to the Broadwater Selection Policy below;

In order for students to be selected in a Broadwater District team, they must be in attendance at the District Trials. The only exception to this is where:

*Students are away at a sporting event of a higher level (in one of the sports approved by Qld School Sport). The District Trial Convenor must be notified of this prior to the start of the Trial.

**Students have a medical certificate that is supplied to the Convenor prior to the start of the trials, covering the regional trial date.

Where there is no district trial (paper nominations), students must still nominate so they can be forwarded to relevant regional convenor

Student Accolades Outside the School Sport Pathway

Here at Benowa SHS we are spoiled for athletic talent and often, this talent falls outside of the school sport pathway. We would love to hear about out students achievements in whatever sport they participate in. Please email your child’s achievements to the Director of Sport (apass27@eq.edu.au) so we can celebrate their accomplishments.

Accident insurance cover for students

Some school activities and physical education, particularly contact sports, carry inherent risks of injury.

Parents are advised that the department does not have Student Accident Insurance cover for students.

If your child is injured at school as a result of an accident or incident, all costs associated with the injury, including medical costs, are the responsibility of the child, parent or caregiver.

Some incidental medical costs may be covered by Medicare. If parents have private health insurance, some costs may also be covered through the private health insurance. Any other costs would be borne by the parents.

Student Accident Insurance is an insurance policy that pays certain benefits in certain circumstances should your child have an accident.

It is a personal decision for parents as to the types and levels of private insurance they arrange to cover their child for any accidental injury that may occur.

Parents should contact their insurer or an approved Australian insurance broker for more information about student personal accident insurance cover for their child.
