We received information last week from the Department of Education that we were successful in gaining $50,000 to go towards the installation of shade sails at both of our campuses. This is great news, as now we can contact the company who
supplied the quote, and get the works started. There will be one shade sail outside of the Mawson building at West Campus, so that the students can enjoy some water and sand play outside under the shade. At Valley Campus, there will be 2
shade sails down the side of the LEC building, with outdoor furniture installed in second term. $50,000 isn’t quite enough to
cover our costs, so we are contributing another $11,200 towards the final costs.
