We are a small netball club that originated at Belle Vue Park Primary School in Glenroy VIC. Nearly half of the students at Belle Vue Park PS speak a language other than English at home, with many refugee families having to negotiate the challenges of being new members of the community and school.
Noticing the low physical education participation rates of his female students, Paul Baks placed a particular emphasis on ensuring his physical education program was inclusive, non-competitive, and engaging for young female students from culturally diverse backgrounds.
Convinced that physical activity in young girls can help build social confidence, positive body image and overall health, Paul worked closely with Netball Victoria and local community agencies such as the Darebin Netball Association, to form a netball team.
With the encouragement of their families, Paul is expanding this initiative and transforming the outcomes of young people in his community. We started with one team and now have U15s, U13s, U11s and the Mum's have also started a team.
In 2023, Paul was recognised for his efforts with an award as the Outstanding Physical Education Teacher in Victoria.
Please see the following YouTube video, which provides an insight into the impact the club is having on the players, while also helping to build stronger ties within the community.
