Local schools will make their playgrounds, ovals and sports courts available to the public these school holidays.
Brookvale Public School, Fisher Road School and Wheeler Heights Public School will throw their gates open to the community as part of the NSW Government’s Share Our Space Program.
I encourage members of the local community to use the schools and its facilities over the holiday period.
The Share Our Space Program provides valuable opportunities for local children and families to get out and play.
I’m delighted the NSW Government is thinking outside the box to provide open play areas for our local community, and putting school assets to good use and it is most encouraging that the number of schools participating continues to grow each school holiday.
The Share Our Space Program is part of the NSW Government’s $290 million Open Spaces and Green Sydney package.
Participating schools receive a $5000 grant they can use to help upgrade their facilities for community and school use. Participating schools will be open during the upcoming school holidays from October 1 to 12, between 8am to 5pm.
