Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly was delighted to join The Ponds School principal Leonie Donaldson and the committee of the Blacktown Ponds Lions Club in presenting a NSW Government grant for the installation of Sun safe shade sails for The Ponds School outdoor playground area.

The Blacktown Ponds Lions Club led by Rissa and Paul McInnes is the project sponsor and was instrumental in obtaining funding of $86,554 from the NSW Government as part of the My Community Grants program.

The shade sails will ensure that the students can play in the outdoor playground area throughout the summer months and provide much needed sun protection.

“Being physically active and sun safe, will enhance the health and wellbeing of all the students at the school and I thank the Blacktown Ponds Lions Club for their support of this school in making this project happen,” said Mr Conolly.

Work will commence shortly and many thanks go to the Blacktown Ponds Lions Club for the support they are providing to The Ponds School students and their families.

The NSW Government is investing a total of $24.68 million in projects across NSW to help improve the wellbeing of the people and communities. My Community Project is made possible by the NSW Generations Fund. The fund helps keep the state’s debt at a sustainable level, while sharing the benefits of its returns with the people of NSW by funding community projects.
