    Social Values

    Narrabeen Sports High School is actively building a school culture that promotes respectful and responsible behaviours and encourages students to achieve success. These three core values aim at creating a community which is respectful, responsible and successful and underpin all programs at the Northern Sydney Scholastic & Sports Academy.

    Participants in the Elite and Emerging Elite Athlete programs at the Northern Sydney Scholastic & Sports Academy will receive explicit instruction in how to conduct themselves using this behavioural approach. Elite and Emerging Elite Athletes will demonstrate positive behaviour by being:RESPECTFUL Embracing difference, diversity and working well in

    Academic & Vocational Opportunities

    At Northern Sydney Scholastic & Sporting Academy we

    recognise the incredible demands made of young athletes

    as they balance commitments in their chosen sport and in

    the classroom at Narrabeen Sports High School. We value

    a balanced curriculum, and to assist elite level athletes

    achieve their academic potential we have appointed

    teacher mentors who will work with students in small

    group settings to ensure all course work is complete.

    This will involve:

    Recording lectures by classroom teachers when an elite

    level athlete is absent due to sporting commitments.

    Offering homework and assignment assistance to help

    students understand key concepts across their different

    subjects and complete coursework.

    Teacher Mentors at the Academy and guest speakers

    leading a variety of workshops focusing on habits of

    mind such as motivation, leadership, teamwork, time

    management and goal setting to maximise outcomes

    on the sports arena and in the classroom.

    In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, the

    School also offers a variety of Vocational and Educational

    Training courses including:

    Sport and Recreation - Certificate 2

    Trade and Construction - Certificate 3. Over $1,000,000

    has been spent on a new Trade Training Centre which is on

    school grounds

    Hospitality - Certificate 2. Over $1,000,000 has been spent

    on a commercial grade kitchen, which is on school grounds.

    The Academy will operate in unison with the academic and social framework of the school curriculum, and therefore the educational value of sport in the overall development of the student will be of major consideration.
