Schools in with a sporting chance to win gear



THE Observer is giving away $10,000 worth of sporting equipment to our local schools.

So if your school really needs some new equipment to keep the kids actively involved in sport, you can help out.

All you have to do is collect the entry coupons from The Observer each day and hand them into your school.

But don't think only the bigger schools will walk away with the goods.

Schools of all sizes can get involved, with the schools broken up in three categories based on population.

There will also be weekly prizes for the class that collects the most coupons.

Students should check that their school has registered for the competition.

If they have, there will be an appointed overseer at the school who is responsible for collecting the coupons and dropping them to The Observer office each Friday by midday for a chance at the weekly prize.
