Inclusive School Sports

Para Sports in Schools

WHY this is important for your school = every student succeeding!


Schools engage Sporting Wheelies to provide physical literacy and a learning experience for all children to learn and play inclusive sports. Our program includes introducing our para-athletes to provide inspiring stories of their journeys of resilience on the path to achieving their miracle and magic moments as well as the opportunity for all children to play para sports.


The program also links effectively with the curriculum across P-12 and we provide resources, training and support for teachers. We share the Department of Education’s commitment to ensuring every student with disability succeeds and is achieving their full potential, and by providing access to exciting para sports we can assist schools to fully engage their curriculum to be safe, supportive, free from bullying, discrimination and harassment and adjusted to meet the needs of all children.


“Students need critical inquiry skills to research and analyse knowledge and to understand the influences on their own and others’ health, safety, wellbeing and physical activity participation. They also need to be resilient, to develop empathy and to be actively engaged in their own and others’ wellbeing, using health, safety and physical activity resources for the benefit of themselves and their communities.” The Australian Curriculum, 2020
