14 14 CHALLENGES Some schools do not offer School Sport as part of the extra-curricular school programme Non-School Sport structures compete with School Sport structures for learner participation Educator as employee vs. volunteer (in and out of school) Increasing the extra-curricular time for PE and School Sport implies extending the school day beyond curriculum contact time Learners are expected to pay to compete in some competitive programme events

15 15 CHALLENGES (cont’d) Educators without qualifications in PE and School Sport who need training Lack of facilities at schools or in the community that the schools can use Lack of equipment in schools – especially in disadvantaged areas Schools and clubs function independently so there is no seamless continuum between offering School Sport on these two levels Lack of an agreed national calendar for competitive events – negative impact on delivery Need to incorporate learners with disabilities into the mainstream

16 16 WAY FORWARD Approve national School Sport calendar as a matter of priority Finalise Policy, PE Plan and MINMEC Finalise a joint draft School Sport Policy Framework Ensure School Sport structures and national federations for a code work hand-in-hand Build School Sport into the extra-curricular school programme via a policy framework Continue with the SASSWC partnership as a model of cooperation Additional areas of cooperation identified between the two Departments appropriately coordinated by working group

17 17 WAY FORWARD (cont’d) Revitalise and re-focus NACOC –Secretariat of NACOC to rest with SRSA –Chairing of NACOC to rotate between two Departments Explore use of SRSA trained school sport coordinators and cluster coordinators who are not educators to support implementation of School Sport and PE Initiate and/or sustain implementation of PE in all schools –First ensure implementation across the system and then review time allocation in 2 years’ time Training of educators in PE –Both Departments to explore sources for funding –SRSA to share existing relevant training and implementation materials with DoE
