Key Priority Area - Quality School Sport

What makes quality school sport?

Quality school sport provides opportunities for all students to participate in a format suitable to their age, skill and ability whilst also linking students with local sporting clubs. 

Quality school sport:

  • is inclusive and accessible
  • encourages participation over performance
  • creates links with local community sports clubs
  • teaches resilience, teamwork and fosters a sense of school pride
  • includes a diverse range of sporting activities to cater to varying interests.

There are many options for year-round school sport delivery within schools including:

  • sport education programs
  • intra-school sports events (e.g. school swimming carnivals)
  • inter-school sport
  • inter-state school sport opportunities.
