SA Sport News - November 2018


Following on from meetings from Minister Wingard, I recently met with the Education Minister, Hon John Gardner and discussed four key topics (Fundamental Movement Skills, Trainees in Schools, Community Use of School Facilities; including design of new school facilities, and School Sport) arising out of our National Sport Plan forum and my many discussions with members over the past eight weeks.

This was a very productive meeting with commitment from Minister Gardner to meet again, early in the New Year, to confirm progress of discussions.  I would like to thank the Minister for his commitment to working together to progress these important initiatives.

In the coming weeks I will also be meeting with Ministers Sanderson and Lensink as well as Education Department CE Rick Persse, to discuss these initiatives further.

I thank everyone who attended and made the Members and Partners Breakfast such a proud and enjoyable morning.  I felt extremely privileged to share with you and celebrate the achievements of our finalists.  I find it so important we, both members and partners, stop and recognise the significant contributions being made in our sporting communities and industry as a whole.  I look forward to raising my glass with you all at the Sport Awards Gala Dinner next Friday evening.
