Parents in NSW have only a few days left to claim a cash boost of up to $450 worth of vouchers through the Service NSW app or website.

The vouchers, which range from the Premier’s Back to School program to free swimming lessons, will expire on June 30.

Here’s what you can get and the eligibility requirements.

$150 back-to-school vouchers

The Premier’s Back to School NSW Vouchers program was designed to help Aussie families buy school supplies.

  • Other expenses

Vouchers can be used at registered businesses and must be used before June 30, 2023. Only one application can be made per student.

$100 Active Kids vouchers

The Active Kids program provides a $100 voucher for parents, guardians and carers of school-enrolled children to use towards sport and active recreation costs each year.

Students are eligible for the $100 voucher if they are:

  • Aged between 4.5 and 18 years

  • Enrolled in school (from Kindergarten to Year 12, including those who are homeschooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE)

  • A current Medicare card holder

You can apply for a voucher for each eligible student and use the voucher for registration, participation or membership costs with an approved Active Kids provider.

$100 Creative Kids voucher

The $100 Creative Kids voucher gives parents, guardians and carers a voucher for each school-enrolled child aged 4.5 to 18 years and can be used with a registered activity provider for registration, participation and tuition cost for a range of creative activities like arts, drama, dance, digital design, coding and music lessons.

Students are eligible if they are:

  • A NSW resident

  • Aged between 4.5 and 18 years

  • Enrolled in school (from Kindergarten to Year 12, including those who are homeschooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE)

$100 First Lap voucher

Parents, guardians and carers of children aged between three and six years who are not enrolled in school can apply for a $100 voucher towards the cost of swimming lessons.

You can use the voucher:

  • For a program of at least five structured and supervised swimming lessons, which are either intensive (daily) or regular weekly lessons

  • At any participating business that is an approved First Lap provider

The child must be a NSW resident and listed on a valid Medicare card.

The voucher can only be used once. If the program is less than $100, the remaining balance is given up and cannot be refunded or used with another provider.
