Sponsorship is available to Ngati Whakaue children aged 0 to 14 years to assist with costs to attend the Rotorua Lakes Swim School (formerly Swimsation) run by Rotorua Lakes Council Aquatic Centre.

Successful applicants will be required to pay their enrolment fee each term. On their child meeting the attendance criteria, they will receive reimbursment of 75% of their term fee.
3yrs to 14yrs - 80% attendance         0 to 3yrs - 60% attendance.  
 RLSS will provide a report to NWEETB at the end of each term.
Those who do not meet the attendance criteria will not receive refund, and will not be eligible for sponsorship in the next term, and for the remainder of the year.

Full details regarding eligibility criteria and sponsorship conditions are contained in the application form.
Applications open each year (subject to Board confirmation) by 20 November, closing mid December, to enable processing and advice to succesful applicants in time for Term 1 enrolment.
