Learning and financial support for educators

A crucial part of the National High School Mooting Competition is not only making it an unforgettable experience for all participants, but also ensuring that our entrants have the support they need to get involved.

For the National Grand Final, Bond University will fund air travel for interstate and intrastate teams who have progressed to the finals. Where necessary, accommodation expenses for WA, SA and NT-based schools will be supported by the University. Schools from VIC, TAS, NSW, ACT and QLD (outside of driving range of the Gold Coast) will fly in and out the same day. Airport transfers and all food and beverages for grand finalist schools will also be included.

Parents and supporters are welcome to attend, and are encouraged to offer their support, however no incurred costs will be covered as part of our funding package.
