New Oval for GHPS!
Steve Dimopoulos announced the news on Monday 14 May, 2018 that we are to receive $309,000 in funding for the GHPS oval re-development. We can look forward to a green and lovely oval for our fantastic students to play on, for our chooks to gaze at and for our hardworking and fantastic community to enjoy.
It’s a great vibe here at GHPS and we are very grateful for how this will impact on our students and the fun they will have. So well deserved everyone and thanks to the many parents and staff who helped realised our dream.
Oval Update June 2019
It is great to see that the turf has been laid across the whole oval and we are patiently waiting for our Kanga Cricket pitch to be completed. We are now in the ‘Maintenance Phase’ and this will continue for 3 months while the turf settles in. We are hoping to have the use of our oval back by the middle of Term 3, I will keep you all posted as I receive developments.
Update May 2019
We received notification that Glen Huntly Primary School would receive $500,000 in this year’s state budget to enable us to complete the planning of upgrading the schools existing facilities and to get early works underway. It will be followed up with a further $4.5 million for the major works. This is in addition to the funding in 2018 for our new school oval.
We are extremely grateful that Glen Huntly Primary School has been included in this year’s budget and in future budgets. As more information comes to hand, we will notify the school community of the next steps. This funding will allow us to continue to improve our fantastic school!
