Ollerup is a school for Gymnastics based in Denmark and each year, they offer a scholarship to a NZ student (historically Wellington based). One of the school’s main focus areas is to provide knowledge and skills to become trainers and leaders in a voluntary organisation. Sports, especially gymnastics, are thus not considered as an aim in itself, but rather as a means of education, aiming at making the students more harmonious human beings.
Brianna McKenzie from Porirua GymSports is currently in Ollerup – see what she had to write home about lately. And Wei Jun Lee attended Ollerup in 2013-2014. Check out what he has achieved since his time as an Ollerup student.
This year’s Ollerup scholarship recipient is Holly Davies from Hamilton City Gymsports. We very much look forward to hearing about Holly’s experiences at Ollerup once she starts her scholarship.
