At Babinda P-12 State School, the allocation of resources
to enhance student capabilities and skills in sport has improved exponentially.
An area of strength is the afterschool sport program. Each term particular sports are selected and
coaching staff are sourced to work with the school and students to ensure the product
we deliver is a success. Families at
Babinda P-12 State School are recognising the benefits a quality after school
sports program can provide.
This term, active after school sports commences with
coaching staff confirmed to be coming from Queensland Cricket, AFL and the NRL
sporting organisations. Afterschool
sport is provided free of charge to primary students of Babinda State School on
Monday and Wednesday afternoons – usually from Week 3 of each term to Week
9. The federal government’s Sporting
School’s initiative provides the majority of funding for these activities.
The student’s thoroughly enjoy the afternoons and look
forward to each term learning something new or practicing a sport they are
already involved in around the community.
Year 5 student Matthew Wilkins has been a part of the after school
sports program for a number of years and after yesterday’s session learning AFL
skills he said “After school sports was heaps of fun today, I especially liked learning
from a real AFL player”. The after
school sports program is an innovative product that aims to give every student
an opportunity to be involved and try something new.
