This project is registered with the Australian Sports Foundation which allows
interested supporters to make tax deductible donations. The project was first
begun in 2000 and was registered for five years to allow groups to set reasonable targets
for fund raising. As the program enters its third five year span, the program
has raised over $200,000, to improve the sporting facilities, coaching
and training of students attending Sydney High.
Our consolidated Sports Development Project is designed to minimise administration
costs and to provide developmental goals for each of the sports played at High.
Financial goals have been set at realistic levels to set a challenge over the five
year life of this first project.
