Upgrades to the playground at Campbelltown Public School have recently been completed thanks to a grant under the Community Building Partnership program.
The $20,035 grant was supported by Campbelltown MP Greg Warren and was used to install seating, shade shelters and relay playing surfaces in the 140-year-old public school.
Mr Warren recently visited Campbelltown Public to inspect the new playground upgrades, and was joined by principal Anna Butler and some of the students who are enjoying their new playground.
“I am extremely proud to support Campbelltown Public School with this grant,’’ Mr Warren said.
“They recently celebrated their 140th birthday and it’s great to be re-investing in the school so they can continue to provide a great education for many years to come.
“I want to thank the members of the school’s P&C and the school staff who have worked so hard for so long to achieve this grant – this is their victory.
“I encourage other school P&Cs around Campbelltown to look at applying for grants in the next round of the Community Building Partnership later this year,’’ he said.
Campbelltown Public was one of eight local schools that benefited from Community Building Partnership grants supported by Mr Warren, with the others being:
$40,000 to Ambarvale Public School for an inclusive playground;
$27,354 to John Warby Public School for a digital LED sign;
$27,000 to Woodland Road Public School for playground upgrades;
$46,200 to Bradbury Public School for an all-weather outdoor playing field;
$38,400 to St Helens Park Public School for shade shelters;
$22,000 to Thomas Acres Public School for playground upgrades;
