The data collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, and the General Social Survey in particular, provides the means to understanding and enhancing the economic, social and cultural impact of the not-for profit, arts and sport sectors on Australian society.
While Australians appear obsessed with sport, 90% of Australians receptively participated in at least one art form and 40% had creatively participated in the arts and only 7% had no artistic engagement in the last 12 months. HOW TO REGISTER: Extended-Day camp is an additional option available when you register your child online for MEGA Sports and Arts Camp. We also offer an extended day camp option available to any camper attending the MEGA Sports and Arts Camp. Extended care activities will be separate and distinct from the Sports and Arts Track experience campers receive in the morning. In 2012, funding was added for communities to incorporate arts activities into their programming. Students have an opportunity expand their awareness of a variety of art forms through the availability of our extensive arts curriculum.
Schools facing budget shortfalls immediately take an axe to funding for the arts because doing the same to sports programs would be sacrilege (unless, of course, you’re talking about women’s sports programs). Whether you plan to get yourself fit and healthy or just have fun and meet people, Longridge Sport & Arts Centre has all you need to do that.

MEGA Sports and Arts Camp is a zero-sum event that is budgeted to be self-sustaining. Taught by practicing professionals , the SAEM major combines a solid background in business, marketing and management with the added expertise in sports, arts and entertainment management. The arts in schools are the perfect way to help apply the more basic skills of reading, writing and arithmetic. Other states, cities, and communities continue to limit or eliminate the arts in school systems. More fundamentally, without data we are not in a position to say anything meaningful about Australian sport, arts or not for profits. Once accepted into the Sports & Arts Program, you will have an individually constructed timetable that keeps your training schedule in mind.
While Obama’s Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, is working to address the overwhelming problems facing America’s schools, I’ve got one suggestion that is long overdue: Let’s reverse the priorities previously given to sports activities and arts education in our schools.
