Sporting chance programme

 

Overview

The Sporting chance programme is an Australian Government initiative which commenced operating in schools in 2007.

The objective of the Sporting chance programme is to encourage improved educational outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students (boys and girls) using sport and recreation.

In 2012 a total of 21 providers will deliver 64 projects under the Sporting chance programme for up to 11,000 primary and secondary school students at risk of not completing their schooling. These projects use sport and recreation as a vehicle to increase the level of engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to improve their educational outcomes.

The Sporting chance programme has two elements:
