Sporting Schools Australia

Sporting Schools is a $280 million Australian Government initiative designed to help schools increase children's participation in sport and connect them with community sport opportunities.

Sporting Schools programs are provided free to children and their families to help students build the confidence and capability to be active for life.

To help achieve this, Sport Australia has partnered with more than 35 national sporting organisations (NSOs). There is a program for primary schools, and a targeted program for Year 7 and 8 students in secondary schools.

Over the last few years, K-6 students at Nicholson Street Public School have participated in the following extended Sporting Schools programs:

* Basketball - Aussie Hoops

* Hockey - Hookin2Hockey

* Touch Football

* AFL Schools

* Cricket - Woolworths Cricket Blast

* Netball - NetSetGo

* Rugby League

* Softball

All of these extended programs have been conducted by a qualified visiting coach, with the NSPS teachers supervising the students and learning valuable teaching skills in the designated sports.
