Sandringham College will be establishing a sports enhancement program in 2014. The program will aim to develop students sporting and academic abilities through a curriculum focused on accelerated learning using the long term athlete development model.
A select group of students from the three sites got together today to participate in a student forum at the Beaumaris Campus. The forum enabled the students to voice their thoughts and ideas on the proposed program.
The afternoon involved a visit and tour of the Victorian Institute of Sport. Here they were taken on a tour of the institute by 5 time world champion aerial skier, Jacqui Cooper. Throughout the tour the students asked insightful questions about the role of the institute in supporting Victorian athletes to achieve success in sport and life.
