Talara Primary College boasts an extensive sporting program. With 8 extracurricular sporting opportunities, and a pathway for students to represent not only their college, but the entire state of Queensland in the sporting arena, we provide our students with a multitude of life-long pathways. Through the provision of grass-roots sporting opportunities, Talara Primary College is continually attaining accolades in many 'All Schools' sporting competitions.
Whole school sporting events at our college are always a highlight for both our students and their parents. Our Prep to Year 6 Cross Country Day at the end of Term One exhibits all the talents and resilience that we develop both in the curriculum based physical education lessons and our extracurricular Cross Country and Kilometre Clubs.
Term Two sees three massive athletics carnivals for Prep and Year 1, Years 2 and 3, and our upper school track and field carnival for Years 4, 5 and 6. They are each a spectacle to watch as our students run, jump and throw their way to success in an array of events.
The Talara Primary College Swimming Program is a pastoral care program under the stewardship of the John Wallace Swimming Club based at the Caloundra Aquatics Centre. In Term 4, the students are put through an intensive program aimed at producing squad level swimmers that are capable in our aquatic environments here on the Sunshine Coast.
