MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall joined the Martin’s Gully Public School community yesterday to throw the first basket and officially open the new $150,000 synthetic grass multi-sport court.

 

Mr Marshall said he was delighted to open the court, which was a vast improvement on the old cracked concrete tennis version it replaced.

 

“It’s been a goal of the school community for many years to replace the old and almost unusable concrete surface with a modern synthetic grassed court which can be enjoyed by students playing multiple sports,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“The finished product is a real credit to the school and ensures the students can enjoy playing tennis, netball or basketball now on a first-class court.”

 

Mr Marshall praised Principal Ian Reeves and the school’s P&C Association for turning a dream into reality.

 

“This has been a real whole of school community effort, with the school, P&C Association, Department of Education and State Government all contributing funds to make this possible,” Mr Marshall.

 

“It’s been driven by Ian Reeves and the P&C members who were determined to provide the students the very best sports facility possible.

 

“Congratulations to Martin’s Gully Public School on this achievement and now having a brilliant new court for all students and community members to use and enjoy.”

 

Mr Reeves said the new court and surrounds would be a wonderful asset for the school.

 

“The students love the new facilities,” Mr Reeves said.

 

“The project would not have occurred without the Assurance from the Department of Education, the P&C Association and the State Government.

 

“Thank you to everyone who has made a contribution – the result is fantastic!”

 

The new multi-sport court is also open for the community to use after school hours.
