CI-02 Federal Government National Sports Plan
Through a National Sports Plan, the Government seeks to set out Australia’s expectations of the sports sector, including our shared goals for high performance sport; sporting participation; cultural and public health outcomes and levels of investment.
The health, cultural and economic contribution sport makes to our country is significant. The National Sports Plan is intended to guide future priorities and approaches, to position Australian sport for the long term. It will examine and seek input from individuals, community groups, sporting organisations, businesses and governments.

FO-26 Electronic License Agreements
In response to feedback provided in the 2016 sports clubs survey and an attempt at making the seasonal application process easier and more time efficient, the Sport & Recreation Team have begun working with electronic License Agreements. These have historically been sent out as hard copy in the post. These can now be signed and returned via email in a matter of minutes.
This will improve the process, save time and make the License Agreements easier to track. If your club has not yet received the License Agreement, it will be sent through in the coming days.

CI-14 Wyndham Learning Festival 2017
This festival is a community event and aims to encourage learning of all ages in all areas. We invite business, schools, other learning institutions, community groups, clubs, interest groups, council departments and individuals to participate. This festival is supported by Wyndham City Council, led by Wyndham Community & Education Centre and is financially supported by sponsorship from businesses in the local community.
The festival is not a single space or event but rather a series of community led activities from various spaces and places throughout the City of Wyndham. i.e. libraries, neighbourhood houses and learning centres, schools, parks, men’s sheds, shops, resource centres, gardens and more. Planned learning activities can be big or small, formal or informal and can be for various audiences on various topics.
After the 2016 Festival many organisations who ran events found that they increased the number of people who returned to their programs, signed up as volunteers, or registered as new members.
