Australian Olympic Pathway Schools Program

The first-of-its-kind in Australia, Matraville Sports High School, has been chosen for the Australian Olympic Pathway Schools program.

This Australian-first initiative is in conjunction with the Australian Olympic Committee to help boost NSW’s future generations of Olympians and Paralympians.

“Our 7 Sports High Schools in NSW are the only secondary schools in Australia to have this prestigious recognition,” Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell.

“This reflects the great strength of our sports high school network, and their excellent track record in fostering both sporting high performance and academic achievement. I can’t wait to see the next generation of medal-winning athletes coming from our public schools as we look to Brisbane 2032.”
