Sport in the Curriculum

Sport, as an aspect of the school curriculum, is an integral part of an individual’s development, requiring physical involvement in organised games or activities within an accepted set of rules. Sport is a valued and accepted part of a school’s curriculum because it contributes to the development of the whole child. It provides a vehicle for a number of social, physical, emotional and moral learning, and is an important expression of our culture. Participation, enjoyment and skill development of all students are the cornerstones of school sport.
