This excellent 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 in more than their academic studies alone. The School has a wide selection of specialist programs that run alongside their academic programs. The school is particularly proud of their competitive Swimming program, their sports facilities, and their ‘Gifted and Talented Music Program’.

The main school we work with has a superb reputation and excellent facilities. Physical Education takes place twice a week throughout Years 8, 9 and 10. Students can also complement their PE classes with Dance, Outdoor Education, Racquet Focus or extra PE Cricket/AFL (Aussie Rules). The School is the current Grade A Champions in Swimming and Athletics. Other competitive sports they participate in include Football, Netball, Soccer, Rugby Union, Cricket, Basketball, Cross-Country Running and Water Polo.

You’ll get a well-rounded experience and knowledge of how a Sports Department is run in a high-quality, mainstream school in Australia. You’ll work with the Head of Department and the PE Teachers. The areas of work you’ll be involved in include:
