2 QUAKERS HILL SCHOOLS TO OPEN UP OVALS AND PLAYGROUNDS TO LOCAL COMMUNITY
Written on the 11 April 2018 by Kevin Conolly
Quakers Hill residents will now have access to more playgrounds, ovals and sports courts as part of the NSW Government's Share Our Space Program.
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly today announced that following a successful trial over summer, Hambledon Public School and Quakers Hill Public School will open their gates these school holidays to allow everyone in the community to enjoy their playgrounds, sports courts and ovals.
"This is great news for families in Quakers Hill and surrounding areas as it not only will give parents and children access to more open green space, but also provide them with more options for school holiday activities," Mr Conolly said.
The $30 million Share Our Space Program follows Monday's $120 million commitment by the NSW Government to secure strategic open spaces for public use and to build more than 200 new and improved playgrounds.
The announcements form part of the NSW Government's new $290 million Open Spaces and Green Sydney package.
"Participating schools will also receive a boost, with a $5,000 grant that they can use to help upgrade their facilities for community and school use. That's a win/win for both the Quakers Hill community and the 2 schools" Mr Conolly said.
The playgrounds will be open from 8am to 6pm, 7 days a week, from 16 to 27 April 2018.
