Through this subject students will work individually and in teams to develop their skills in a variety of sporting, recreational and health activities. The subject culminates in a two-day sporting carnival where academies will compete to claim the SAASTA Shield.
Students who have completed each of the curriculum tasks in the lead up to the event and have attended school more than 80% over the semester are rewarded with this experience by SAASTA. There is a rotation of sports each year and the girls’ and boys’ teams with the highest number of points earn the right to play off in the Grand Final before the sport’s highest league giving students the opportunity to try new sports and compete against other schools.
Regular school attendance is a key factor in a student’s ability to be successful in this subject.
If eligible, students must attend the SAASTA Shield as well as any other SAASTA events.
Students must have a pair of formal black pants and shoes.
