Sponsorship is available to Ngati Whakaue children aged 0 to 14 years to assist with costs to attend SwimMagic Rotorua (formerly Rotorua Lakes Swim School) at 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 reimbursement of 75% of their term fee.
3yrs to 14yrs - 80% attendance         0 to 3yrs - 60% attendance.  

SwimMagic will provide a report to NWEETB at the end of each term. Those who do not meet the attendance criteria will not receive a refund, and will not be eligible for sponsorship in the next term, and for the remainder of the year.
