Tender Details

The NSW Department of Education partners with many organisations whose support for state-wide school education programs adds significant value to student learning experiences. Our partners contribute cash and in-kind support to a range of ongoing learning programs as well as educational initiatives. The department in return provides profiling and other benefits.

The department is interested in partnering with organisations in support of its inaugural rural and remote band competition Surround Sound which aims to provide high quality performance experiences and additional resources to meet the needs of creative rural and remote students and their committed teachers.

Surround Sound invites public school bands, in rural and remote areas of NSW, to perform covers or originals in any style of contemporary music. Finalists will participate in a workshop with an industry mentor before travelling to Sydney in November to perform in the final competition rounds at SpecFest, staged on the Qudos Bank Arena forecourt.

Sponsorship packages are available for the following designation levels.

• Major Sponsor 

• Associate Sponsor 

• Prize Partner 

We can also work with you to tailor a sponsorship package that meets your organisation's objectives.
