From the Principal






It is with great excitement that I am able to unveil the completed grounds Master Plan for Hamlyn Banks PS.

The Master Plan has been 5 months in the making and captures the thoughts and ideas of the School Community with student voice being instrumental in the design. The Master Plan is aspirational but I see elements that we can carefully plan for and execute over the next 3-5 years with a particular focus in the short term for the refurbishment of the oval.

Other items on the plan include:

-          Removal and upgrade of the McDonald’s Playground on Chaucer Street

-          Installation of a shade structure on the netball courts

-          The introduction of a Play Pod

-          Building mounds around the outskirts of the oval

-          Further tree planting

-          Additional Sand Play areas

-          Upgrade of the turtle enclosure

During term 2 my task, with the Environment Committee, is to price the master plan and detail the cost of each element to enable us to prioritise and strive to complete the plan in stages.

It is important for you as the community to know that any fundraising that occurs at the school will be used to achieve this plan. If you are interested in finding out more feel free to contact me and if you feel like you have something to offer in terms of advice or services I would also be interested in speaking with you.

More information about what is being done will be posted to this site soon.
