New running track for Narara PS

Narara Public School’s new running track

Students at Narara Public School have been enjoying their new running track, thanks to a $26,000 grant from the NSW Government.

The money is part of the Government’s Community Building Partnership program.

President of the P&C association at Narara Valley Public School, Tiffany Smedes, applied for the grant.

“It was something the school had wanted for years,” Smedes said.

“It is something fun for the kids.”

The five-lane track extends 50 metres down the school’s side and backs onto a sandpit – perfect for long jump events.

Member for The Entrance, David Mehan, was at the school on Wednesday, February 24, for the official opening.

The NSW Community Building Partnership program awards grants to be used for community infrastructure projects.
