PublishingPageContent

Purpose

To provide Queensland state schools with funds to assist in meeting the costs of their respective, representative school sport programs. These funds assist with the costs involved in replacing teachers from school duties who are participating in the representative school sport programs, and with other associated auxiliary expenses.

Duration of program

Ongoing

Eligibility

State schools

Allocation of funds

Teacher replacement

Funds are allocated based on teacher replacement costs with consideration of the number of state/regional teams, number of teachers per state/regional team, number of national and state championship events being conducted and the number of school days required.

The allocation will vary based on the specific representative level of competition (i.e. Regional trial, State championship, National/Interstate event).

Schools may receive funding for all days the staff member is absent. The specific role the staff member undertakes (i.e. competition days, travel days, meeting days) determines the department cost centre used in the payment process.

Other auxiliary costs

Funds can be allocated during the sporting cycle, where there will be both:

  • agreed district, region or state costs which may include affiliation fees (district, region and/or state)
  • sport-specific committee expenses used to assist with the running of sporting event competitions. These costs may include venue hire, sporting equipment hire (public address systems), or purchase and event specific catering and uniforms.

Payment details

Payments to schools under this program are negotiated with their Regional Sports Board. Any payment made will be in-line with the scheduled monthly payment runs.
