A partnership between Intereach Family Centre and St Michael’s Primary School has enabled children to utilise the school’s playground and oval throughout the school holidays.
Participants of the Out of School Hours (OOSH) vacation care program enjoyed sports activities at St Michael’s Trickett St grounds on Tuesday.
Principal Bernadette Murphy said the school was happy to share the facilities with local organisations.
‘‘This partnership has been a wonderful way to share a facility that sits idle for six weeks over summer and can be well utilised by local children,’’ Mrs Murphy said.
‘‘When the new centre opened we offered the use of the grounds out of school hours as we could see that it’s a great opportunity for children to play games and enjoy the equipment.
‘‘We all know how important physical activity is for children and how it can improve their social wellbeing interacting with their peers.
‘‘We are pleased the Family Centre has made good use of this facility during the holidays.’’
Intereach acting senior manager of children’s services Karen Wilson said the centre was appreciative of the access to facilities.
‘‘It is really great to work with the Wilcannia Forbes Catholic diocese,’’ she said.
‘‘Bernadette has been fantastic to work with and is very accommodating.
‘‘They have been flexible in our access to the playground and it’s great to use an area in such close proximity to our convenience.’’
