GAMES RECEIVE SCHOOLS SUPPORT

Victorian schools are banding together to help raise awareness and funds for the upcoming National Games.

Caulfield Grammar School students and staff recently opened their doors for Special Olympics delegates to use their swimming, athletics, tennis and basketball facilities. Students also hosted a fundraising barbeque to raise money for athletes’ ground costs.

St Helena’s have also joined in supporting the Games with the provision of student volunteers, along with participation in exhibition sports with a local Special Development School and ongoing fundraising activity.

Schools interested in getting involved with education and fundraising initiatives are encouraged to contact the National Games office on (03) 9510 0640.
