Schools Are Opening Their Playgrounds These Holidays

A record 183 government schools across NSW will open up their playgrounds, ovals, and sports courts to their local communities to use these school holidays.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said he was delighted to see the number of participating schools participating in the Share Our Space Program since the program  it was first introduced 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,” Stokes said in a statement.

By opening up playgrounds and sporting facilities we can also encourage local communities to keep active, Stokes said.

“It makes no sense that students have to catch a bus to cricket nets or basketball courts if they have a local school just across the road,” he 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.

Participating schools will be open during the upcoming school holidays from October 1 to 12, between 8am to 5pm.
