SportStart Funding Assistance for Families

SportStart is a funding scheme available to families where financial hardship is a barrier to participation in physical activity. Funding is available for 5-16 year olds in the Nelson Tasman Region. For example a child can receive assistance to participate in a summer and a winter sport.

For more information on the SportStart scheme please visit their website on . To download an application form please click here.

We also  have the application form available in the office if you would like to collect one. Alternately you may wish to email us on and we will send a form home with your child.

Applications are to be made through a club/organisation, and as Wakefield School is registered with SportStart, please return your  application to the school office. Confidentiality is assured.








Coaching Opportunities

We rely heavily on parental support with all our sports teams. If you have expertise in an area and would like to be of assistance then please let me know. Having said this we are grateful for any offers of help. With most of the sport played at this age an enthusiastic coach is the best asset a team can have. You don’t have to be an expert!


Sports Uniforms

All students in Years 3-6 are expected to wear one of the new Wakefield School Tops when playing in a Wakefield School team. If your child is in the Juniors and they don’t have one of these tops yet, a similar shade of blue  t-shirt will be acceptable.
