The Joli Green Project, run by the P and C, aims to improve the school’s amenity with an all-purpose court, while upgrading its quadrangle into a better space for learning and play, as well as creating a kitchen garden and frog bog.

P and C president Trueman Faulkner said the existing court in the quadrangle was on a slope and too small to house a new court that met Australian standards, while the bitumen surface was badly deteriorated.

‘We anticipate the community will be able to use the new facilities we develop,’ he said.

Mr Faulkner said the public were welcome to comment on three designs drawn up by an architect, who was volunteering his time to the school, at a consultation night on Wednesday, September 25, at 7.30pm.

Principal Christian Woodcock said the project was expected to cost more than $200,000 and the school would apply for funding after the meeting.

He was keen to see what expertise was available to advance the project.
