The Real Madrid Foundation's project in Australia is represented by Wellington High School, a public school located in the central New South Wales town of Wellington, approximately 355 km from Sydney.
The social sports program develops its activities in the primary and secondary levels which cater for students from diverse backgrounds, over half of whom are Indigenous Australians.
The objective of the social sports program, which is implemented by Wellington High School, is to promote healthy lifestyle habits, encourage sports practice in a safe space, and reduce social inequalities. The program inspires students to excel in the field that they most identify with and promote pride in their own identities. Since the Real Madrid Foundation social sports program was launched in the 2015-2016 season, it has had a very positive impact on the participation of girls in sporting activities, for which football has become the discipline of choice compared to other team sports such as rugby.
