LOCAL STUDENTS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ACTIVE KIDS VOUCHERS
More than 3750 students in the Lismore Electorate have registered for the Active Kids Program in just 15 days.
Member for Lismore, Thomas George said he was thrilled that parents were using the opportunity to download their $100 voucher to cover the cost of sports and active recreation fees.
“Active Kids is all about helping families afford this year’s sport and other fitness activity fees and getting kids moving and remove barriers to playing sport.” Mr George said.
“We know the cost of kids sport and activities can really add up, especially for families with multiple children playing different sports.
“Lismore is seeing strong numbers in voucher redemptions for Football, Netball and Rugby League and Rugby Union - we want to see that continue across all sports in our community.”
Active Kids will contribute $100 for every child towards the cost of sports registration, membership expenses and fees for physical activities such as swimming, dance lessons and athletics.
Parents can register online with Service NSW to receive their $100 voucher to provide to their approved sport or physical activity club or organisation.
Parents have until 31 December 2018 to claim and use their voucher at sport.nsw.gov.au/activekids or by phoning Service NSW on 13 77 88
