Lismore High Campus offers a variety of sport during its weekly sports program so that all students have an opportunity to excel in their chosen field.
Sport for Years 7-10 is run on Wednesday morning along with Kadina High Campus and Richmond River High Campus, providing more opportunities for students to experience competitive and recreational activities within the River’s Secondary College community.
Students in Year 11 & 12 are not required to undertake school sport but are invited to do so, provided prior arrangements have been made.
Sport is part of the core curriculum and such is a compulsory part of a student’s schooling. Parents should avoid scheduling activities or appointments during the sport time which would necessitate their child regularly missing sport. Failure to send students to sport is treated with notifications to the Child Wellbeing Unit and or the FACs for educational neglect.
At the beginning of each term, students will be offered a variety of sports they may wish to undertake. The availability of these sports will depend on venues and teacher expertise. Some sports also have an upfront cost, if accessing an offsite sport.
Permission notes for participation in some sports will need to be signed by parents.
Any concerns about school sport should be directed to Mr Mark Thompson, the Sports Organiser.
Inability to Participate in Sport
In the event of injury or illness, a student must provide evidence in the form of a written statement from a parent or caregiver, to the Sports Organiser before Roll Call on sports days. These students will be supervised in the library and be allowed to do private study using the library facilities. Students, however, are not allowed on the computers. Students will not simply be allowed to go home.
