Sports Leadership Program

The Sports Leadership Program is one of a number of leadership opportunities provided to students in the upper years. Students from Years 3 to 6 elect their House and Vice Captains for the year at house meetings in Term One. The elected students then participate in sessions where they learn skills associated with organisation of games, safety precautions, preparation and teamwork. The program supports students as leaders within the school community. In Term Two the students organise lunchtime games for the junior classes and assist in the smooth running of the whole school Sports Day.

  • Participate in a Sports Leadership program during Term One
