MINISTER FOR EDUCATION AND TRAINING

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY QUESTION

QUESTION NUMBER 73

Physical Education and Sport - Students with Medical Conditions

MS McRAE - asked the Minister for Education and Training on notice on 19 September 1995:

How many students are there in ACT schools who have medical needs that would prevent them participating in competitive sport.

MR STEFANIAK - the answer to Ms McRae's question is:

There is no expectation that all students will participate in competitive sport.

Where students are unable to participate in physical education classes for medical reasons, each school takes such issues on a case by case basis.

Accordingly the Government does not collect data on students with medical conditions preventing them from participating in competitive sport on a system wide basis.
