Layne Beachley – Reach for Stars Foundation
By stamping her name in the history books and securing 7 world surfing titles, Layne has been able to inspire and motivate women across Australia to “Dare to Dream, Pursue their Passion and Aspire to Achieve”.
Pursuing a passion requires commitment. Commitment to yourself, the effort required to remain true and focussed on your goal.This Foundation is all about empowering and enabling individuals to take control of their lives, to invest in their future and fulfil their potential. We support girls and women with initiative and passion, that are committed to achieving a dream and courageous enough to ask for help along the way.
The Layne Beachley Aim for the Stars Foundation inspires and empowers girls and women to achieve their goals. This support includes funding to help them realise their dreams in sporting, academic, community or cultural pursuits. If you, or someone you know needs help to enable them to invest in their future and fulfil their potential then they should apply for a Layne Beachley Aim for the Stars Foundation Scholarship from July 1, 2014.
Applications close November 14, 2014, and should be completed online. Scholarships are awarded at the discretion of the Foundation to eligible applicants who best demonstrate their aspirations and need.

Premier Sporting Challenge
The Challenge includes a range of initiatives with one common purpose – to have more students, more active, more of the time! The Premier’s Sporting Challenge aims to engage young people in sport and physical activity and encourages them to lead healthy, active lifestyles.
Sport plays an important role in developing regular physical activity, provides positive health outcomes and is a fun and healthy way to connect with your local community. We invite students to take up the Challenge – and take the path to a healthier life.
The Challenge is open to all NSW public schools and students, so I encourage everyone to become involved, especially those who haven’t tried sport before.
The latest newsletter from PSC includes photos, stories and updates.
Check out all the fun and activity.
