Schools Rugby

The National Schools Forum will take place on Friday the 8th and Saturday the 9th of December at Rugby Australia, Moore Park, Sydney.

This is the first national, open Schools Rugby Forum to be held in Australia.
It is occurring in the context of the ongoing development and implementation of the National Schools Rugby Strategic Plan (NSS)

It will be open to all those from schools interested in rugby, those holding rugby related or coordinating positions—as well as to key people from the ARU and other senior rugby bodies.

It will take place in the educational context that is a school, looking at changes in schools that are influencing the way sport is occurring.

Key Considerations

  • That there be a wide range of participants from all school sectors—State, Catholic, Private, Regional, State, Large and Small.
  • That all participants become fully involved in the preparation for, and discussions during the forum.
  • That schools Rugby is celebrated for what it does for the education, involvement and ongoing participation of young people in the gam
  • The assistance of those in schools who are Conveners, Sports Directors and those who have attended a Consultations in 2016 and 2017 – is needed to ensure the Forum has the widest possible attendance and that it achieves its aims.

Concrete Aims of the Forum

  • That the National Schools Strategic Plan undergo further clear development as a result of the Forum.
  • That schools and senior rugby bodies develop significant understandings of the roles of each in Rugby.
  • That participants learn significant new things about Rugby, particularly new safety policy.
  • That the schools voice in determining their needs for rugby in schools is clearly articulated and heard by senior rugby bodies.
  • That the views of schools as to how best to develop rugby in schools are stated and heard.
  • That appropriate methods of ongoing consultation are developed and agreed to by all parties.

Cost: $33. Which covers event registration, catering for the event.
Participants will need to arrange their own Accommodation and Transport, including any parking for the event. 
A list of available accommodation has been researched by ASRU and available here. (Prices are correct as at time of publication).
