FAIR GO, SPORT! SCHOOLS ANNOUNCED FOR 2015


The Fair go, sport! schools project is an initiative funded by the Australian Sports Commission aimed at making schools safer and more inclusive for same sex attracted and sex and gender diverse students (SSAGD), through sport and physical education.

Schools that adopt the Fair go, sport! project take a proactive approach to ensuring students feel more comfortable when participating in sport and physical education, while also focusing on creating a sense of harmony and belonging within the broader school environment.

Research shows that most homophobia experienced by SSAGD young people occurs at school and they feel least safe in sport or in the physical education class. This negative experience has a significant impact on their health and wellbeing.

This is a challenging and exciting project that enables schools to provide their students with the sort of care and support so necessary to their wellbeing and optimal development.

The schools selected to participate in the Fair go, sport! project for 2015 are Buckley Park College, Manor Lakes College and Overnewton Anglican Community College.

They join Reservoir High School, Keilor Downs College, Whittlesea College and Castlemaine Secondary College as the trailblazers for fair and inclusive sport in Victorian schools.

Find out more about Fair go, Sport on the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission website.
