We believe active students are healthy students, and encourage all of our pupils to find movement that sparks joy for them. For those who show added passion and talent for their chosen sport, we are proud to provide pathways for talented rugby, netball, hockey and equestrian students.
In a first outside major metropolitan high schools, NEGS , in collaboration with Hockey NSW, Netball NSW and the UNE Lions will deliver exclusive Player Pathway Programs incorporating high performance coaching.
TAP is unprecedented for a regional boarding school for girls, identifying talent and offering our students the chance to hone in on their skills and reach their greatest potential, whether on the pitch, the court or the paddock. It also extends to our equestrian centre, where riders have wonderful access to tutelage from some of the best horsemen and women in the country.
This pathway will provide intensive training and skills development to current and newly enrolled NEGS students, giving them the best chance to excel in NSW netball, hockey and rugby. Elite players will have access to the best coaching in the state, delivered by specialists.
