Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joined St Nicholas of Myra Primary School Principal, Anita Knezevic and school captains to announce that they have secured a grant of $80,000 to upgrade their playground.
Stuart Ayres said the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program is about delivering grassroots funding to enhance local facilities and provide positive outcomes.
“The new adventure playground at St Nicholas of Myra will encourage outdoor fun and recreation with a new safe, level playing surface with shade covering.”
“This new playground will ensure students can enjoy outdoor play and fun activities for years to come,” said Stuart Ayres.
Ms Knezevic said we are very grateful in receiving this grant from Stuart Ayres towards the reimagining of our playground. Covid has taught us the importance of being active outside with family and friends. Without the addition of these funds, we would not be able to enhance our student’s wellbeing and laughter!
Applications for the 2021 Program are due to open in early 2021. For more information about the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program, please visit www.nsw.gov.au/cbp
