All Weather Sporting Hub for North Balgowlah

Member for Manly James Griffin has welcomed NSW Government funding for Balgowlah North Public School’s All Weather Sporting Hub, a new synthetic sports field to be built on the school site as part of the My Community Project grant program.

“It’s great to partner with the P&C to deliver this new sports field as one of Manly’s My Community Projects,” Mr Griffin said.

“After conducting a site visit with the P&C, staff and students, I welcomed ‘turning the first sod’ on what will be a great synthetic field for use by the school and the entire community.

“When a school community comes together, bringing together skills from a wide variety of professionals, and puts their mind to a positive project, it’s incredible to see what can be achieved.

The project is part of a broader sporting and social hub program bringing the community together, promoting active participation in sports in a safe environment. Access to an all-weather synthetic field, in a convenient location will greatly enhance participation across a number of sporting codes for families in North Balgowlah.

The planned facilities have received all necessary approvals from the Department of Education, supported by Balgowlah North Public School and the P&C, is ready to tender and expected to take 4-6 months to complete.

Balgowlah North P&C President Nick Kuys welcomed the funding from the NSW Government.

“After years of tireless fundraising, we are very excited to see this project enter the construction phase,” Mr Kuys said.

“We would like to thank James Griffin and the broader Manly community for their support of this exciting initiative and look forward to enjoying the completed facility early next year.”
