A great way to engage our QCS students and propel them into successful habits.

Grant Webster, UCSC, HOD Senior School

Your program was great to push and extend our students. Your team is also a credit to you. It was fun and exciting and we will definitely be back again – it's a perfect fit for our program.

Mick Skehan, Director of Rugby Academy, St Stephens College

I just wanted to congratulate you and your team for the fabulous camp that we had under your direction. For the first time we felt we were at a leadership camp, not a camp that was manipulated to look like a leadership camp – the professionalism was outstanding. We have decided to rebook for multiple years.

Peter Hughes, Deputy Principal Coombabah State High School

Thank you for your awesome effort with our group last week, but a huge thank you for all your time and commitment in making our Fitness Camp such an invaluable three-day experience. We have no hesitation in recommending the Sports Centre for all and any camps to meet the needs of school groups. We will be back next year.

Anthony Lee, Cert III Fitness, Shailer Park State High School

The kids thoroughly enjoyed the QCS Bootcamp. They said they could apply and implement some of the skills they picked up, and it put everything in focus and was good information to take on board. All in all though it was a valuable day and presented skills and strategies in quite a novel way that the kids could implement.

Anne-Maree King, Dean Senior Secondary, Shailer Park State High School


Our leadership program takes students on a journey of self-discovery as students learn about themselves and how to effectively interact with others.

The program introduces students to 6 different Character Strengths that have been developed from the concepts associated with positive psychology and the Australian Curriculum. Students will be given an opportunity to connect with their Character Strengths by going through a process of self-reflection and identifying their personal values.

By understanding these values and establishing a greater depth of self-awareness, students will work on building their confidence to utilise their Character Strengths in a range of different activities that challenge them in group settings and aim to take them out of their comfort zone.

Our Sport Development program encourages students to adopt a high-performance mentality by exposing them to the 6 ‘off field’ focus areas that make up the ‘ME’ Student Athlete Framework.

Our expert team of teachers deliver a range of fitness-based and team-building activities across our world-class sporting facilities. While participating in these challenging sessions, students are led on reflections that emphasise the importance of a positive MINDSET and build their understanding of the power of their influence through their output and how they allocate their ENERGY.

A Sport Development camp at RBSLEC is also a great opportunity to take students into a high-performance environment to establish or reinforce the cultural pillars that underpin successful school-based sporting programs.
