Living an active life is essential for ongoing health and wellbeing. Competitive sport and physical activity have been part of the daily routine at Lauriston for more than a century.

Over the last year, our Principal and the members of the Sport Department have developed a Sport Strategic Plan which outlines Lauriston’s philosophy and the use of the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model. The LTAD enables the sports team to provide a clear path for better quality sport, heathier outcomes and higher achievement for all students at the school.

Science, research and experience all lead to the same outcome: young people and adults will get active, stay active, and even reach the greatest levels of sport achievement if they do the right things at the right times to develop their sport or activity. This is the logic behind the LTAD.

We like to thank the many parents who were consulted in developing this plan, your feedback was reassuring and your ongoing assistance with Lauriston’s sport program is invaluable. Click here to read the plan.
