After a successful trial over the summer, communities will be able to access over 80 public school playgrounds during the April school holidays.

Playgrounds, ovals and sports courts will be open for the community to use from 8am to 6pm, seven days a week, from 16 to 27 April 2018.

Schools participating in the Share Our Space program will receive a $5000 grant that they can use to help upgrade their facilities for community and school use.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said school playgrounds are valuable assets.

“By making them accessible outside of the school term they can provide a broader benefit to the whole community, including opportunities for sport on school ovals,” Mr Stokes said.

“We learned a lot from the pilot program – kids don’t want to be stuck indoors during the holidays, and communities respected and welcomed having access to their outdoor school facilities.”
