Sporting Schools is a national programme available to all Australian primary schools.


It will engage more children in more sport based activity within schools and then convert their interest into club based settings.

It will help children foster a lifelong interest in sport, gain a healthier mind and body, have fun and learn sport activities and games in a safe environment.  

Sporting schools has taken over from the previous program ‘Active After School’ and will commence in Week 5. Please note there have been a few changes to how this program was delivered in 2014. The sports will be delivered from 3.00-4.00pm and afternoon tea will not be provided.
