School sport at Sydney Secondary College Leichhardt is grounded in the comprehensive benefits it offers to students, schools, and the broader community. Active participation in school sport is important because:

·        Health and Well-being: School sport promotes regular physical activity, addressing concerns about sedentary lifestyles and associated health issues. By engaging in physical activity, students can develop lifelong habits that contribute to their overall health and well-being.

·        Holistic Development: School sport fosters the holistic development of students by providing opportunities for physical, social, and emotional growth. It complements academic learning and equips students with essential life skills such as teamwork, leadership, resilience, and discipline.

·        Social Inclusion and Equity: School sport ensures that all students have access to physical activity and sports opportunities, promoting social inclusion and equity. It provides a platform for students of diverse backgrounds and abilities to participate in a shared experience, fostering a sense of belonging and community within the school environment.

·        Educational Value: School sport contributes to the educational mission of schools by offering learning experiences that go beyond the traditional classroom setting. It teaches important values such as sportsmanship, fair play, and respect for others, which are integral to character development and ethical behaviour.

·        Long-term Impact: Encouraging school sport can have a long-term impact on public health by promoting active lifestyles and reducing the prevalence of sedentary behaviours among young people. It also contributes to the development of a physically literate population capable of engaging in various physical activities throughout their lives.

·        Community Engagement: School sport enhances community engagement by providing opportunities for parents, teachers, and community members to support and participate in sporting events, fostering a sense of school pride and unity.
