Girls Touch Football Academy

The Harris Fields State School Touch Football Academy has been created to allow female students aged between 10 and 12 years the opportunity to pursue their interest, knowledge and skills in the area of Touch Football.  It further aims to build confidence and improve their ability to communicate and cooperate effectively in team and game situations.  A 30 minute sesson each week focuses on the key learning area of Health, while a further 30 minute session focuses primarily on sport related skills including catching, throwing, offensive and defensive skills, evasion skills and game play tactics.  Two after school sessions are held where the primary focus is on fitness and game play.  Participants compete in a number of one day carnivals throughout the year.  The culminating competition is the Primary All Schools Touch Football championship which is a two day event held in November.

Learning and League

For many students in Logan and the surrounding districts sport, particularly rugby league, is their passion.  At Harris Fields State School, we want to utilise this passion for rugby league to improve student engagement and outcomes across the school curriculum.

The introduction of a Rugby League Excellence Program at Harris Fields State School aims to:

  • improve engagement of participants in all areas of their schooling;
  • maintain high standards of behaviour and attendance;
  • develop and extend participants’ skills and understanding in rugby league;
  • develop socially responsible students who value and strive to achieve in education and sport.

The Rugby League Excellence Program Squad will comprise of stduents from Year 5 and 6 who have demonstrated an ability, willingness and level of behaviour and attendance that warrants their selection.  A 30 minute sesson each week focuses on the key learning area of Health, while a further 30 minute session focuses primarily on sport related skills including catching, throwing, offensive and defensive skills, evasion skills and game play tactics.  Two after school sessions are held where the primary focus is on fitness and game play.  Participants compete in a number of one day carnivals throughout the year.
