2015 Fair go, sport! schools announced

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

The Fair go, sport! schools project aims to make schools safer and more inclusive for same sex attracted and sex and gender diverse students (SSAGD), primarily through sport and physical education.

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.

The Fair go, sport! project being adopted at these schools will aim to allow students to feel more comfortable when participating in sport and physical education and will help to create a sense of belonging within the greater school environment.

Congratulations to these schools for adopting this challenging and exciting project. 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.
