This is available in a number of forms:

Schools need to be prepared to contribute towards the cost of a new map. The amount will vary depending on school size (Primary School, High School, R - 12 Campus).  A quote will be provided when a mapping request is submitted.
  • Subject to availability a coach will be able to work with you with an in school activity using the above map. Cost: $50 per class for a one hour session or similar including gst. .  The cost for maps where supplied by OSA will be advised.  A school can also print maps from a master copy supplied if preferred.  Please email below to discuss your requirements and  the costs.
  • Primary schools are encouraged to apply for Sporting Schools funding to cover costs of in school sessions and production of a school map.
