Montville State School is very actively involved in school sport. With many carnivals and events occuring throughout the year, there is always a sport for everyone to participate in.
Training begins early in the year. As all students across the school particpate in our annual Athletics Carnival towards the end of term two. The carnival is usually run over two days, with Prep - 3 being held on the Thursday and 4-6 on the Friday. The focus of these events are participation rather than competition.
