Ollerup is a gymnastics academy in Denmark. Every year the Whanganui Boys and Girls Gym club offers a scholarship to one lucky recipient, to attend Ollerup. It is a boarding school where gymnasts participate in sports, sports theory, coaching practices, Danish studies, leadership and team building activities, intercultural studies and of course, gymnastics. Many types of gymnastics are offered at Ollerup. Some of these include; tumbling, power tumbling, teamgym, rhythmic gymnastics, dance, and parkour.
As well as lots of Danish students, there is a large class of international students. Everyone is able to learn about different cultures and create lifelong friendships. The atmosphere of the school is like a home away from home.
To be eligible for the scholarship you do not need to be the best at gymnastics. We look for applicants with a strong passion for the Club, outstanding leadership and commitment, an interest in gymnastics and teaching, and someone who will represent not only our Club but New Zealand with pride.
