The Queensland Academy of Sport (QAS) is proud to be partnering with the Australian Olympic Committee to roll out an exciting new schools-based program - Olympics Unleashed!
Olympians, Paralympians and athletes aspiring for Tokyo 2021 are excited to visit schools to help Queensland schoolkids be the best version of themselves.
We want to unleash the ‘Olympic Spirit’ in all students to pursue their passion whether that’s in sport, the classroom, the playground or at home.
About the program
The program sees Queensland athletes travelling to classrooms throughout the state with an aim to inspire and motivate students to unleash their passion.
Presented in an interactive and engaging way, these ordinary people doing extraordinary things will share how they have:
- set goals
- overcome challenges
- demonstrated perseverance to unleash their potential.
The 45 minute presentations are aimed at Years 4 to 6 and involve athletes sharing experiences from their Olympic and Paralympic journey that every student can learn from.
A bonus for the students and teachers alike - athletes will also have time to interact and sign autographs following their presentation.

Olympics Unleashed is provided at no cost to schools; all you have to do is register.
