Resources and support for physical activity in schools

The NSW Premier's Sporting Challenge's aim is to promote increased participation in sport and physical activity, leading to healthier, more active lifestyles. Our motto is to get 'more students and staff more active, more often'. Teachers can access a range of resources to support not only the delivery of PSC programs in their school, but any activity-focused initiative they deliver to their students and staff. 

Many of program areas within the School Sport Unit have a 'participation' focus, and as always upskilling staff or providing them with resources is highly valued.

Below are a number of links to pages within the PSC as well as other SSU program areas with the focus on getting 'more students and staff more active, more often'.
