Shepparton to host National All Schools Sport Challenges

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

In partnership with Greater Shepparton City Council, 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 two sports during September 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 title of 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.


The region is always ready to welcome visitors from all around Australia, Mayor Councillor Shane Sali said.


“Greater Shepparton is proud to be hosting this exciting national event and welcome the many school students and their supporters into our community. Being a weeklong event we encourage the participants to explore our great lifestyle and enjoy our unique local offerings and attractions,” Cr Sali said.


“We are proud to continue investing in the development of high quality sporting facilities, they allow us to secure significant events such as this one and to further improve the sporting talents of our community, stimulate our visitor economy and enhance our reputation as the leading sporting events destination in regional Australia.” Cr Sali said.


“We are immensely pleased that Greater Shepparton City Council will host the final two National All Schools Sport Challenges with the sports of Badminton and Football. With the support of Greater Shepparton City Council, Schools in Action is bringing the excitement of All School Sport to Shepparton” said Deneille Sutton, one of the Directors of Schools in Action.
