The Multi-Sport Turf & Lighting project has raised enough funding to begin the first phase of the project.
The first phase is the preparation of the existing tennis court surface on the North Street side of the gym: laying the turf, providing a storage facility and the provision of gear i.e. Basketball, Hockey and Futsal goals, as well as Tennis nets.
This has been enabled by on-going fundraising and donations, including a generous contribution from sponsors Peter and Karen Walsh.
The first phase will start in Spring at the end of Term 3 due to the necessity of warmer weather to lay the turf. With all going to plan, the facility will be ready for use early in Term 4 with the next stage of the provision of lights to increase the use of the facility to hopefully follow in 2020.
With this in mind there is a proposed school-wide Workday on Friday June 28th (the Teacher Only Day) with the proceeds raised going towards the gear and lighting for a facility that will be used extensively by the Physical Education Department and across a range of Sporting Codes.
