Federal Member for Lyne Dr David Gillespie today joined students, parents and staff at Kendall Public School for the official opening of a new $57,000 playground.
“The new playground is long overdue and with contributions from the Federal and State Governments, along with community groups and organisations including the hard work of Kendall Public School P and C Association,” Dr Gillespie said.
“This new play equipment will give students a place to develop their physical, social and emotional growth as well as having lots of fun for many years to come and I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate the school community on a great job.”
A Federal grant of $9,000 from the Stronger Communities programme was made available to support the project.
Dr Gillespie also met and had discussions with the school’s Parliament who had just taken the Oath of Office.
“It was great to meet up with the new School Parliament and discuss their new role. I know they are all capable leaders and I’m sure they will do a great job,” he added
