6 THREE PILLARS OF SCHOOL SPORT Physical EducationTop School LeaguesYouth Olympics__________________________________________________________PHYSICAL EDUCATIONPhysical Education refers to the integration of Physical Education as a learning area within the curriculum of every school. This is meant to promote sport skills development, healthy living among all learners and further fight challenges of obesity which are currently on the rise among South African learners.While this was previously not the case, Physical Education is now being offered as part of the curriculum in all South African schools. The ongoing challenge is to maximise impact by improving the skills level of educators and to locate Physical Education as a stand-alone learning area (separate it from Life Orientation).66
7 THREE PILLARS OF SCHOOL SPORT …Cont TOP SCHOOL LEAGUESTop School is a league program where each school will register its School Team which will participate in the leagues' five competition levels, leading to the National School Festivals (i.e., (1) Intra-School, (2) Inter-school level, (3) District level, (4) Provincial level & (5) National level).A good example of Top School League is Premier Soccer League (PSL) model.YOUTH OLYMPICSThe Youth Olympic focuses on individual talented athletes at a particular level of the competition. The selected start athletes will then compete with other talented athletes from other areas.These talented athletes are identified by professional talent scouts, sport clubs and federations during the roll-out of the Top School League to form different teams (squads) representing the respective Area, District, Province or the National team.A good example here is the SAFA National Squad.77
9 SCHOOL SPORT POLICYThe policy was released for public comments on 09 December until 31 March The comments have been analysed, mainly the concern is ensuring existence and implementation of Physical Education and available educators to teach Physical Education.The JNTT has sourced the services of the policy specialist from UNICEF to finalize the policy. It is envisaged that the policy process will be completed by 31 December 2012.9
10 CAPACITY BUILDINGProvincial officials of both Departments were trained by SASCOC on the process and progress in the Teacher Development programme on 20 January 2012.SRSA will support Federations to launch their coaching programmes, DBE will identify educators who will benefit from this training.A school sport capacity development committee has been formed consisting of DBE, SRSA, SASCOC and CATHSETA. The committee will review the training material content as well as facilitate and coordinate related activities.1010
11 SCHOOL SPROT CODE COMMITTEES A guideline document on establishment of code committees has been developed, consulted with codes and federations, approved and distributed to provinces for implementation.Provinces are at various levels of implementation.
12 RESOURCE AUDIT- SCHOOLS SPORT In order to generate a reliable body of knowledge and to inform planning, a Resources Audit exercise has been kickstarted.The audit seeks to gather information on demographics of the schools, available facilities, equipment and human resources for sport. The information will assist both Departments to plan better for sport, as well as to prioritize schools to receive equipment.The exercise is currently underway, covering all the schools and report of this audit will be by end of September 2012 or before.12
14 CONDITIONAL GRANTIn line with the commitment to step up Schools Sport as a key priority, 50% of the SRSA Conditional Grant for the MTEF of R470 Million has been ring-fenced for School Sport.Of this allocation, 30% has been ring fenced for equipment and attire (R )The breakdown below, shows how the rest of the allocation has been broken down:Ring fence R5m to provide transport, accommodation, all meals, attire and support for the delivery of provincial teams to national school sport competitionsThrough SLA’s with the 16 provincial federations provide funding for a coordinator for school sport programmes at R per coordinator per annum5% to support school sport code structures through SLA’s with provincial federation20% to support the training of educators30% to purchase equipment and kit for disadvantaged school20% to deliver district and provincial competitions15% for the establishment and support of sport focus schools10% for cluster co-ordinators to coordinate and support the delivery of school sport programmes and monitoring and evaluation at local level
16 SPORT FACILITIESEssential to the delivery of Schools Sport Programme is availability of sport equipment and facilities .The current reality is the imbalance in the distribution of equipment especially in the public schools.The Department of Basic Education, National Education Infrastructure Management System (NIEMS) confirms this status.It is for that reason that our priority in delivering sport in schools has to concurrently address the need of facilities and sport equipment1616
