​The Herbert and Bowen sports houses were introduced in the 1950s. Herbert was named after Sir Robert Herbert, the first Premier of Queensland; gold was chosen as the house colour. Bowen took the name of Sir George Bowen, the first Governor of Queensland; the house colour is light blue.

Students are allocated to a sport house on enrolment, with members of the same family given the same house. Houses compete in the Cross Country, Athletics and Swimming Carnivals.

At each sporting carnival age champions (from nine years) are recognised and receive a medallion to commemorate their achievement.

Community groups and individuals have contributed perpetual shields: Sam Doumany Ball Games Shield; Geffen Cup for Sport Excellence; Interhouse Athletics Champions, sponsored by the Moorooka Bowls Club; Dutton Park State School Parents and Citizens Swimming Shield; Dutton Park Cross Country House Champions Trophy.
