High Performance Grants and Financial Assistance for Sport

Mr C Richards, Sports Council —

The OGHS Sports Council allocates money each year to support athletes.

There are two types of assistance. The first, financial assistance is available to students whose families would otherwise find it challenging to continue participation in sport due to costs involved. An informal chat with the coach, manager or teacher in charge is all that is required. They can apply confidentially on behalf of the student.

The second type of assistance is for high performance. High performance grants enable athletes to achieve their sporting dreams, often at a regional or national level. The money is available for specific purposes and includes out of school sports. Applications for the first round of grants close at the end of Term Two on Friday July 1

An application form can be completed at https://forms.gle/yPydu8JFkr8rmsQv6. If you need assistance in either of these grants, please contact either Mr Richards, Ms Hokianga or Mr Trickey.
