Sydney hosted its first School Education Program on 10 April at the Ken Rosewell Arena.
The program was first launched over a decade ago at Melbourne Park (home of the Australian Open), and since over 8,300 primary school students have participated in the program across Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales.
Over 200 year 6 primary school students from Liverpool, Parramatta, Merrylands, and Condell Park participated in the pathway program which aims to make a positive impact on young people and effectively build sustainable communities across Australia through program experience.
These primary schools visited Ken Rosewell Arena for the first time and provided priority of access to some of the most disadvantaged students within the state.
Children engaged and developed a sound understanding of diversity through interaction, embraced social cohesion, benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle through sport and the values of mateship through the ANZAC spirit.
