Basketball Court Work is Underway

We have workers at the school currently working on phase one of the new court. This involves levelling out the surface. There is a temporary fence erected to keep students safe and away from the area. Phase two will begin next week with the laying of the grass.The project includes a new synthetic basketball and netball court, running sprint lanes and new synthetic grass cricket pitches on the oval. We anticipate the project will be completed within two weeks. Everyone is very excited and we hope this further supports the great sporting facilities we have here at West.
