School Games & Competition Code of Conduct

The School Games provide an excellent opportunity for all young people to take on a role and make a positive and active contribution to their school. Whether as an athlete, leader, official or coach the School Games hopes to engage everyone - whether they see themselves as 'sporty' or not.

The School Games can provide additional opportunities for schools to work in partnerships with other schools, organisations and businesses as well as within and across communities to promote learning and well-being.
