Thousands of school children in the Oxley electorate are among those across the state now eligible for the NSW Government’s new $100 Active Kids program

Member for Oxley, Melinda Pavey MP, said from today all parents with school aged children will have help with sporting and fitness-related costs.

“No parent should have to second guess if they can afford this year’s sport and other fitness activity fees. We want to get kids moving and lower barriers to participating in sports,” Mrs Pavey said.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said from today all parents with school-aged children will have help to cover the cost of sports and active recreation fees.

“This is a fantastic initiative for parents because we know the cost of kids’ sport and activities can really add up. ‘

“Active Kids is one of the ways the NSW Government is easing cost of living pressures on families,” Ms Berejikilan said.

It also supports the Premier’s Priority to reduce overweight and obesity rates of children by five per cent over ten years.
