SAPSASA stands for South Australian Primary Schools Amateur Sporting Association and runs large sporting events in which many primary schools participate. SAPSASA increases students' participation in a variety of sporting activities. It exposes them to physical activity and develops their skills in a range of sports. It also is a chance to select students for district and state team competitions.
Some of the sports SAPSASA includes are:
- Swimming Carnival
- Cross Country
- Beach Volley Ball
- N etball
SAPSASA is a great opportunity for all students to have a go at sports which they have never tried before or may not be experienced in. We are very lucky here at Salisbury as most students who want to participate in the competitions and carnivals are able to so.
Student’s health and physical exercise are an important part of developing our students wellbeing at Salisbury Primary school.
