Sports vouchers to be Extended to high school students

Currently sports vouchers only available for primary school children. As our children progress to high school it is an increasingly important time to keep children occupied and active. We would like to see the government vouchers extended to secondary students. This could save money in the long run by keeping our children in structured clubs and occupying their time, keeping them off the streets. It promotes healthy attitudes as our kids progress into adulthood and healthy adults will impact less on our health care system. Unfortunately it it getting harder to make this possible with fees particularly for low income families and large families, and extension of the vouchers could see more youths be able to participate.
