Sport Equity Fund


Established by the Board of Trustees to address equity in sport, the Sports Equity Fund has a vision to see more students being able to participate in sport where previously they may not have due to financial constraints.

This links well with our College’s mission statement: ‘To create a safe, stimulating and exciting learning environment that allows each student to develop her academic, cultural and sporting potential.’ As well as the TGC Sports Vision: Thrive Grow Connect Succeed Empowering wahine toa to thrive, grow, connect and succeed through sport and recreation.

The sports department is very excited about this fund and have two mechanisms to help capture as many students who may require financial support. We have implemented both external and internal mechanisms to help capture as many students in the hope that all students who wish to be involved in sport are supported appropriately.
