Active After School Communities
The Australian Government's Active After-School Communities (AASC) program is a national initiative that provides primary school children, including those at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic School, with access to free sport and other structured physical activity programs in the after school time slot of 3.15pm to 4.15pm.
The program aims to engage traditionally inactive children, as well as already active children, in sport and other structured physical activities and through a positive and fun experience, develop a love of sport that inspires them to join a local sporting club.
At Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic School we strive to provide opportunities to children to try new sports and activities, to broaden their horizons from already known and enjoyed sports to activities that are not as well known. Our children have certainly enjoyed participating in sports such as Archery, Taekwondo and Cheerleading.
The Active After School Communities Program is available to all children from Prep to Grade Six during term time at no extra cost to families.
