CBP2021 GRANT:
$52,673 to fund a learning circle
with presentation space and break-out circles.

• Learning Circle – sandstone block seating, creating an outdoor classroom, utilising existing grade to create an amphitheatre

• Break-out circles – sandstone block seating clusters

• Presentation space – timber deck/stage presentation space

• New trees for shade

 

The informal learning space is based on an indigenous yarning circle. The Learning Circle will be part of our wider Reconciliation project, which also includes the planned addition of bush tucker edible plantings to our existing kitchen garden and ornamental beds with indigenous plantings.

 

This outdoor classroom, adjacent to our existing kitchen garden and native bee hive, will be a welcoming space to learn about aboriginal traditions, bush foods and sustainability.

CBP2020 GRANT:
$80,000 for a m
ultipurpose sports court with reversible basketball / netball towers; spectator seating; and supply of advanced trees to provide natural shade to site.

 

A multipurpose sports court integrates markings for many different sports onto the one playing surface. This allows for a number of different sports to be played on the one court, keeping it in use year-round.

 

The reversible basketball/netball towers have a basketball goal on one face, and a netball goal on the other, allowing for easy switching between game type.

 

Multi-purpose facilities are cost-effective, reducing infrastructure required to meet similar needs and increase sustainability. Enhanced, flexible facilities will expand the types of activities that can be offered on the site.

The space will improve access and participation for users with a disability and has been designed to be inclusive for those of our students with mobility challenges – allowing for smooth wheelchair access from the adjacent path onto the court.

CBP2019 GRANT:
$34,700 for installation of fence to separate playing field from car park, including
lockable vehicle gates and lockable pedestrian gate, to improve user safety.

 

Our playing field is an attractive, green and spacious area used by a variety of different groups year round. The provision of barrier fencing between the playing field and the adjacent car park greatly enhances its’ safety for all users.

Key benefits:

  • Reduces risk and danger to pedestrian users from intentional or accidental vehicle impact

  • Prevents users from wandering and chasing sports balls from the playing field into car park and between vehicles

  • Reduces damage to playing field, trees, paths and structures by vehicles

  • Reduces general vandalism

  • Reduces uninvited and unauthorised ingress to school grounds

Official opening of new fencing: State Member for Heffron Mr Ron Hoenig, SPPS P&C President Mrs Kate Hafey, SPPS Principal Mrs Rebecca Salter

CBP2018 GRANT:
$23,670 for installation of shade structure over playground area.

 

The shade structure provides a sheltered outdoor area for events and activities, with practical coverage from ultraviolet radiation without making it, or the adjacent school hall, too dark.

 

Our central quadrangle playground area was very hot and exposed for most of the day, especially during lunch and recess. The cement surface generated intense reflected light and radiant heat. Converting it to a sheltered outdoor space adjacent to the school hall greatly enhanced practicality and usability.

The space has been especially useful since the advent of COVID-19 and a marked increase in student enrolments. Many school activities such as assemblies and presentation day are now easily accommodated outdoors under the shade structure.

Official opening of new shade structure: State Member for Heffron Mr Ron Hoenig and SPPS P&C President Mrs Kate Hafey
