HOLIDAY FUN IN THE SCHOOL YARD AT RED RANGE, WARIALDA AND BONSHAW

Wednesday, 3 October 2018

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall said three local primary schools would make their playgrounds, ovals and sports courts available to the public these school holidays.

Bonshaw, Red Range and Warialda Public Schools are throwing their gates open to the community as part of the NSW Government’s Share Our Space Program.

Mr Marshall encouraged members of the local community to use the schools and their facilities over the coming holiday period.

“The Share Our Space Program provides valuable opportunities for local children and families to get out and play,” Mr Marshall said.

“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.”

Education Minister Rob Stokes said he was delighted to see the number of participating schools continue to grow each school holidays since the program first began in December 2017.

“Schools are at the heart of our local communities, which is why I am thrilled to see more and more schools opening their gates every school holidays,” Mr Stokes said.

The Share Our Space Program is part of the NSW Government’s $290 million Open Spaces and Green Sydney package.

Participating schools receive a $5,000 grant they can use to help upgrade their facilities for community and school use.

The three schools will be open during the holidays, from today to 12 October, between 8am and 5pm.
