School sport throughout Australia provides the pathways and encouragement for thousands of students to represent their schools, regions, state or territory and potentially Australia. School Sport ACT is honoured to facilitate these opportunities for the over 50,000 students across the ACT and is recognised as one of the leading and most effective and efficient organisations delivering school sport in Australia.
The Council is very proud of the work done by our staff under the leadership of Executive Officer Liz Yuen in order to ensure we provide all our stakeholders, students, teachers, parents and officials, with the support required to participate in their chosen sport.
I wish to also acknowledge and thank the Principals of the schools for endorsing school sport, the teachers who go “above and beyond” to provide these opportunities for students, the students for their enthusiastic engagement and the parents who provide the taxi services and supporting roles during trials, training and competition.
Thanks also go to the many community sports who work closely with SSACT to maximise the sports specific learning outcomes through coaching. It is this collaborative approach to school sport that ensures ACT students are afforded the best opportunities for growth and development.
I wish all our stakeholders an exciting year of participation and competition.
