Inverell High School was recently awarded the New England Region Award for Excellence in Sport Education.

 

Inverell High School has a strong sporting culture that is broad-based and offers a large range of student-oriented activities focusing on meeting student needs, interests and talents. Many of our teams and individual students have been successful in local, regional and state events over successive years.  We have also implemented a range of initiatives to encourage a love of sport and physical fitness Our committed staff support the school's sport programs through both traditional sport afternoons and through after-hours coaching for various knockout and representative sports. All staff participate in professional learning activities designed to increase both capacity and awareness of how to organise and run successful sport afternoons. A number of staff have their coaching certificates. We have also been involved in sporting endeavours within the local community.
