Surfing Excellence Program

This program is an initiative of the school and wider community. Year 4-6 students selected for this program participate in training and competitions in conjunction with Surfing Australia. The program hosts the Joel Parkinson Curra Grom Comp and the North Caloundra Surf School Grom Fest in conjuction with Surfing Australia. Former student and 2012 World Surfing Champion, Joel Parkinson, is the patron of our Surfing Excellence Program.

Surf Lifesaving Skills and Awareness Program

All students from prep to year 6 participate in an accredited surf lifesaving program in partnership with Dicky Beach SLSC and Queensland Surf Lifesaving. The program includes beach activities, swim proficiency, board paddling, CPR and rescue training (This occurs on a term basis for each year level).

Currimundi is proud to offer the only prep to year 6 program on the coast.

Beach Carnival

In this annual event the school sports house compete for the Kerri Thomas/Joel Parkinson Shield. Students from prep to year 6 are involved in many beach activities. There are also surfing, body boarding and tin lid (ironman/woman) contests.

Inter-School/Inter-house Sport

The school caters for both summer and winter sport.  Both Inter-School and Inter-House competitions are arranged.  All students participate in an Athletics Carnival each year as well as a Beach Carnival, a Cross-country Carnival and a Swimming Carnival. Students are allocated into Sports Houses on enrolment at the school. 

We also provide a fundraising obstacle course call 'TUFF CURRA' where students raise money for fantastic programs around the school.

Swimming

Swimming instruction is provided for students from Prep to Year 4. Year 5 and 6 students participate in a Surf Skills Program, which focuses on surf awareness, surf safety, body boarding and surfboard riding.  There is a charge for these programs.  The sporting programs at Currimundi encourage participation from all students and form an integral part of the school sports program.
