To all families/friends of 1st South Penrith Scout Group.
You have probably heard about the active kids rebate. Even if you haven’t, or simply want to know more - below is everything you need to know about how to get and then claim the rebate. This brochure has the basics - www.nsw.scouts.com.au/wp-content/uploads/ActiveKids/ScoutsNSW_ActiveKids_ParentBrochure.pdf This link - www.nsw.scouts.com.au/activekids/ - tells you everything you need to know about using the Voucher for Scouting, but let me spell out the steps here. 1. The NSW Government is helping kids get active with the new Active Kids program. From 31 January 2018, parents, guardians and carers can apply for a voucher valued up to $100 per calendar year for each student enrolled in school up to 18 years of age. The voucher may be used with a registered activity provider for registration, participation and membership costs for sport, fitness and active recreation activities. Apply for the voucher at the website www.service.nsw.gov.au/transaction/apply-active-kids-voucher (NOTE: You’ll need to have, or create, some serviceNSW login credentials) 2. Enter the voucher number and other info at the website www.nsw.scouts.com.au/active-kids-voucher-redemption-form/ 3. Once the voucher is confirmed, the Scouts NSW state branch will send details of who has submitted a voucher to our group. 4. The invoice the group receives on the first day of each new quarter will then be reduced for those who youth who have completed steps 1 and 2. 5. We will then reduce the quarterly term fee’s for the voucher. Note: NSW state branch reduces what they charge the group for the quarterly membership. That is $41 in the first term, $41 in the second term and the remaining $18 in the last term. As such this is NOT an instant $100 off. Even if you have already paid for our 2018-Term1 invoice (As I’m sure you all have since it was sent out in December with 7 days to pay). If you apply for the voucher now you’ll still be able to use it ‘all’ this year.
You CANNOT use the voucher more than once - so, it's impossible to use it for say, Scouts and Soccer or Cricket, footy etc. You CANNOT use part of it with one organisation and the remainder with another. This is the GOVERNMENTS rules, not ours 😉
