St Anne’s are proud to be a Sporting School
St. Anne’s has been successful in securing funding for Term 2 of the Sporting School Program. We have partnered with the Australian Football League to deliver Australian Rules Football to all children.
Sporting Schools is a $200 million Government program designed to help schools increase children’s participation in physical activity and connect children with community sport.
More than 85% of schools around Australia receive Sporting Schools funding, which supports children to get active and have fun.
Engagement in sport and physical activity can help keep children healthy, happy and socially engaged, all of which can impact on their intellectual capacity and academic achievements.
The program provides children with positive sporting experiences to help develop a lifelong interest in sport and physical activity.
Sporting Schools is in partnership with more than 33 of the country’s leading sporting organisations who develop quality, nationally-endorsed resources and activities tailored for primary and secondary school students.
Support from parents and families is also known to have a positive impact on a child’s motivation and enjoyment of sport.
