Notre Dame University Partnership

When the University of Notre Dame moved into our neighbourhood in the 1990’s we began to establish links and develop partnerships particularly with the Schools of Education and Health Sciences. One of these connections is Fundamental Movement Skills program where over the course of eight weeks the university students under the leadership of their lecturer develop both their teaching and interpersonal skills by working with the children. The Notre Dame ‘sport teachers’ plan, assess and conduct the Fundamental Movement Skills lessons with their ‘buddies’.  Our students thoroughly enjoy their engagement in this program and we see improvements in the children’s physical skills. Our families are delighted to have their children engaging in such a program and linking with the university in a community partnership is seen as a great benefit for our school.
