Sports Intern at a High School in Perth
What will I be doing?
This sports internship is based at a superb school with a well developed sports department. There are 1,800 students, who are all encouraged to participate to take on extracurricular activities. The school has a wide selection of specialist programs that run alongside their academic programs, they are particularly proud of their competitive swimming program, their sports facilities, and their Gifted and Talented Music program.
The main school we work with has an excellent reputation and great facilities. PE takes place twice a week throughout Years 8, 9 and 10. Students can also complement their PE classes with dance, outdoor education, racquet sports or extra PE cricket/AFL (Aussie Rules).
The school is the current Grade A Champion in swimming and athletics. They also compete in football, netball, soccer, rugby union, cricket, basketball, cross-counrty running and water polo.
