Background: Specialist Sports Course at Wirreanda Secondary School
Wirreanda Secondary School has a long history of successful involvement in sport, establishing the Specialist Sports Course (in South Australia) in 1980. The school recognises the value of health, sport and physical education as an integral part of students’ development and growth.
In acknowledgement of this involvement, Wirreanda Secondary School was chosen as the first South Australian Specialist Physical Education & Sport School in 1996. The school has now developed a top class, a comprehensive program aimed at adding value to the experience students’ gain at their respective clubs. We have also established supportive relationships with State and community sporting organisations to increase the profile and quality of physical education and sport activities for the students.
