In 2013, Netball NSW is hosting a FREE School Gala Day for Students from CaLD backgrounds. This event is a new initiative by Netball NSW to provide school-aged students from CaLD backgrounds, who currently participate in the NetSetGO! program in their school, the opportunity to play netball against other students of similar abilities and backgrounds.

The FREE School Gala Day for Students from CaLD backgrounds will:

  • Allow students to put into action their new skills, whilst participating in match play as a team;
  • Provide students with an opportunity to experience netball, in an enjoyable and safe environment where they experience personal achievement, enhanced self-esteem, social cooperation and skill development;
  • Build their confidence in an inclusive sporting environment, at no cost to your school or students;
  • At the end of the day, each student will receive a certificate at the conclusion of this participation event
  • Schools can form teams of students from CaLD backgrounds, while Netball NSW recommends each team consists of maximum 10 people. Please be advised that teams may consist of primary school aged boys and girls

*Please note that a minimum amount of teams is required for event to continue. Teams will be notified should Gala Day be cancelled.
The School Gala Day has also been designed as a professional development for teachers – gaining skills and knowledge on how to run NetSetGO! in your school environment.

Due to poor air quality and a health notice to schools, the 2013 School Gala Day for Students from CaLD backgrounds originally scheduled on Thursday 24 October has been re-scheduled to Thursday 28 November, 2013.
