Leaders In Sport Program

Background

We are now in the third year since the introduction of the Leaders in Sport Program (LIS) at Year 9. The program focuses on students with a passion for sport, leadership and academic achievement. The program allows students to develop their athlectic ability, skills in teamwork, personal development, leadership and organisation while undertaking their academic studies.  The students in the inaugural class are now in Year 11. We want to continue to challenge, engage and inspire our LIS students, to keep them connected as a cohort and explore ways of continuing their involvement in the programas they move through Senior School.
