Sport in Schools
Department of Education Media Release
8 Aug 2012
The new Australian curriculum expects that all Tasmanian Government schools provide a minimum of two hours of Health and Physical Education each week for students, Education Department Deputy Secretary Liz Banks said today.
“Schools employ a range of strategies to achieve this expectation including daily designated physical education lessons and organised intra / inter school sport.
“In addition schools utilise initiatives such as Move Well Eat Well and Active After Schools programs to supplement their efforts,” she said.
Ms Banks said that sport in schools is still actively organised through active regional school Sports Associations state-wide.
