Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today visited Penrith South Public School to officially open their new fitness equipment area.
“Each week, teachers are required to provide students with 2 ½ hours of activity and this new equipment will help to keep them fit and healthy and active while having fun,” said Stuart Ayres
“The new fitness equipment is modern and safe and will ensure students can enjoy outdoor activities and play for years to come,” said Stuart Ayres.
School Principal, Ms Kerrie Beeby said initially the equipment will be used by the 256 students in years 3 to 6 and by the 80 children who use the Before and After School care service.
The fitness equipment was made possible through a grant of $30,000 through the NSW Government’s 2017 Community Building Partnership (CBP) program.
