Port Kembla Public School received $339,520 through Round 3 of the Port Kembla Community Investment Fund program for the Port Kembla Public School – Public Facilities Upgrade Project.
The Port Kembla
Public School grounds are used by a wide cross-section of the local community
outside of school hours on a daily basis. This includes for BBQs, picnics,
birthday parties, children learning to ride bikes and roller-skate, basketball,
skateboarding, sports and fitness groups.
The coastal location of the grounds and their heavy utilisation have caused a significant deterioration in their condition. This project will refurbish the playing field including drainage and irrigation, resurface the multipurpose court, construct an adventure playground, and replace the fences.
