Our school offers a great many extra-curricular activities for all year levels.  Please contact us for a full list of our programs.

Our programs include:


All students are encouraged to take part in our cultural production program. We recognise that not all students want to perform but are equally valued as members of our backstage, sound and lighting or costume design teams.

Isis District State High School views these cultural productions as a vehicle to promote a positive school culture across year levels and build self esteem and positive values among our student body. We are also fortunate to have a dedicated staff who contribute to the success of our productions and are committed to the development of the individual through this program and promote positive student – teacher relationships as well as productive school – community interaction

Public speaking

The school has a long tradition of success with respect to public speaking. There are several opportunities for students to participate in such competitions, dependent on their availability by organisers. They may include:

Rotary Debating

As a recently introduced competition, Rotary Debating currently only has a Junior Competition. Students argue across a range of topics as set forth by Bundaberg District Rotary Clubs, which involves both the research and preparation of speeches, but also the delivery of impromptu rebuttal.

At this stage, Senior students are able to gain experience as adjudicators for debates.


Each student who enters this competition has to deliver a prepared speech. This is less daunting for some students, compared to debating, because it does not involve rebuttal! However, if a student progresses far enough in the competition, he or she will have to deliver not only a prepared speech, but a short notice one as well.

Lions Youth Of The Year

This competition has a public speaking component, although the majority of the marks are derived from a personal interview. Students have to deliver a prepared five minute speech as well as tackle two, two-minute impromptu questions.


Like the Lions competition, this one extends beyond just public speaking, but still contains a prepared speech as well as a short notice one.
