What we do

The Metropolitan North School Sport Board is an operational Unit within Education Queensland which supports three districts - Brisbane Central and West; Brisbane North and Murrumba - in the Metropolitan North School Sport Region. 

It supports the physical, intellectual and emotional well-being of young people, so they can be productive students and members of their communities. 

This is created through the provision of comprehensive school sport programs.  The Board’s core purpose is to focus on children and schools within the various education systems.

Mission  

To co-ordinate and support appropriate quality sporting opportunities for all students in Metropolitan North regional schools.

Core Purpose

The Metropolitan North School Sport Board is an operational Unit within Education Queensland.  Its core purpose is to focus on children and schools within the various education systems. 

The Board supports the development of physical, intellectual and emotional well-being of young people so they can be productive students and members of their communities.  

The Board facilitates, supports and leads the Sport districts and Sport Committees in their development of sport education.

Learning

The Board, through its programs in school sport, provides new opportunities to learn.  The representative program targets the gifted and talented students.  The school sport programs also provide a safe, tolerant and disciplined environment that allows students to learn teamwork and correct behaviours in ‘winning’ and ‘losing’.  It also gives students the opportunity to develop good self-esteem and provides a platform for learning the importance of a healthy lifestyle.  The inclusion of students with disabilities and remote/isolated students, is a function of The Board.

Schools

The Board contributes to the development of distinctive schools through supporting schools in the establishment of Centres of Athletic Development.   The Board continues to establish useful working relationships with community sport bodies.  These partnerships are important in the delivery of quality programs to schools and their students.

The School Workforce

The Board provides an avenue for teachers to develop their skills in coaching and team management.  By providing competitions at the regional and state level and avenues to  national and international level, teachers have an opportunity for professional development within a sequential system.

School Services

The Board contributes to school services that facilitate the work of schools and the learning relationship between selected adults and students.  It provides financial management and accountability, policy advice and assists in the appointment of team management to representative teams.

Portfolio Relationships

Since 1997 the Board has offered its programs to the non-state school sector.  It has put in place processes that allow for the involvement of both teachers and students from this sector.
