Bendigo to host National All Schools Sport Challenges

Updated: Oct 6, 2022

In partnership with the City of Greater Bendigo, Schools in Action is excited to announce its inaugural National All Schools Sport Challenges, a secondary school sport event.


Schools in Action will bring together high performing secondary school sport teams from all sectors of education; Government, Catholic and Independent to compete in four sports over two weeks in August 2023. This program will provide opportunities for school students in Years 9 and 10 to compete against schools they do not usually have an opportunity to challenge. They will contest for the honour of being the best sporting school in their sport in Australia. Not only will it cater for highly talented students in school teams but also offer the large number of their team mates the chance to participate at a national event.


“We are delighted to host the inaugural National All Schools Sport Challenges at our world-class facilities in Bendigo that will bring together so many talented high school students, competing over two weeks in August 2023. We look forward to welcoming families and I encourage everyone to make the most of your stay and enjoy Greater Bendigo’s fantastic visitor experiences and support our local businesses,” said Terry Karamaloudis, City of Greater Bendigo Manager Tourism and Major Events.


“We are thrilled to have the City of Greater Bendigo with their outstanding facilities hosting the first of our four National All Schools Sport Challenges with the sports of 3x3 Basketball, Netball, Hockey and Table Tennis. It provides Schools in Action the opportunity to bring the excitement of school sport to Bendigo” said Deneille Sutton, one of the Directors of Schools in Action.
