Regular participation in sport and physical activity is associated with a range of physical and mental health benefits both in childhood and adulthood. Active children generally become healthy adults and schools play a key role in contributing to that outcome.

Sport is a compulsory and valued part of the curriculum and is an integral part of a child's development. School Sport programs include inter and intra-school competitive sport, outdoor recreational or adventure sports, fitness, sport development and physical recreation activities. The range of activities is immense, from the traditional and popular sports such as cricket, rugby league football, netball, hockey, softball and swimming, to the newer favourites such as canoeing, ice skating, martial arts, trampolining and skateboard riding.

Students are encouraged to participate in a way that suits their interests and abilities. During school sport students will develop a variety of skills that will equip them for lifelong participation in regular sport and recreation activities.

What benefits can come from sports?

No other thing in life affords children such opportunity to develop positive character traits and to soak up many quality values as sports does.

  • Kids’ character and moral principles are formed through fair play.
  • Playing sports enables them to create friendships they otherwise might not have formed.
  • Sports bring people together from all over the world, regardless of their nationality, religion, culture, or skin color.
  • Teamwork and benefits of social interaction among children are best seen in sports.
  • Sports experiences help building positive self- esteem in children.
  • Participating in sports can be a helpful way of reducing stress and increasing feelings of physical and mental well-being.
