In my last newsletter article I included the sketch designs for the new Performing Arts Centre, Canteen and Year 8 Learning Centre. Included here is the sketch design for our new gym. This includes allowing for the possible future extension of an additional court. I am continuing to work with the City of Kingston on a possible partnership with the injection of further funds from our local council to see the addition of a second court and establish a joint use agreement. We have a strong business case to present, with overwhelming demand in our local community for indoor facilities and having at least two courts (instead of just the one) will at least help meet the demand. Chelsea Basketball, Chelsea Netball Association and the Mordialloc Sporting Club are all very keen to have access to such a multipurpose facility out of school hours. The City of Kingston values the building of positive relationships and making community connections and also supporting local sporting organisations. As a school known for its strong sense of community we see huge potential in a joint partnership with the City of Kingston to foster these values and develop a significant community asset to meet the growing needs within this community.
