Coles Sport for Schools

Coles Sport for Schools

Throughout the year our P&F have been collecting Sport for Schools vouchers from Coles. We are so thankful for all the wonderful families in the College who have helped gather these in order to fundraise for new sporting equipment. Our Primary students now have more balls to use for tennis, soccer and netball, as well as soft dodgeballs, all produced in our house colours. We have also been given a large set of soccer shin pads, coloured braids and ball pumps. All of this equipment will be of great use to the Primary sport department and we will soon see our students using these out in the playground.

This Coles initiative can have a great impact on the sporting needs of schools; not only does it provide further equipment for us to use but it allows us to create further opportunities for students to participate in physical activity. The latest report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare identified physical inactivity as a risk factor for chronic disease. The burden of this inactivity then increases with age, so the more opportunities we can give our students to be physically active the better. If we can develop lifelong, healthy habits in our students now then they will see the benefits of this in the future. Thank you to the P&F for their positive impact in addressing the needs of the College.
