Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2003 Week 3 Hansard (23 October) . . Page.. 4119..


The department and the Active Australia Schools Network provide regular opportunities for professional development for teachers to increase skills in teaching, coaching and officiating. These cover a wide range of sports and are conducted during and outside of school hours and are well supported. As community sporting organisations demand qualified officials to conduct sporting competitions, opportunities are also available to improve skills in sport-specific areas.

In September 2003 the department approved funding of $41,000.00 for the provision of professional development of teachers in the area of health, physical education and sport to commence in 2004.

In 2003 School Sport ACT provided opportunities for students to participate in a range of sporting activities. These included:

State team representation at School Sport Australia events (48 teams across 14 primary sports and 20 secondary sports)

District or Zone representation at School Sport ACT Finals competitions (in 19 primary and 39 secondary sports)

School representation in District or Zone competitions (in 19 primary and 39 secondary sports)

Administration or officiating experience at School Sport Australia events (in two primary exchanges and two secondary championships held in ACT)
