Community Facilities at Mernda P-12 School
A lot of residents are not aware that many of the school facilities at the new Mernda P-12 School will be designed with the local community in mind. Some of the planned ‘community access’ facilities include a 20 metre Learn To Swim pool (LTS), a community hub multi-purpose space, and Outside School Hours Care. There are also plans to build a two court gymnasium built to Netball Victoria standards and a performing arts theatrette, music room and rehearsal spaces.
I am working with the Education Department to ensure neighbouring schools will also have access to the LTS pool on agreed days and times to conduct water safety and first aid programs or for school swimming carnivals and competitions.
There are still a number of details to sort through and consultations with the community to go. We are keen to keep the sporting and community organisations involved and in the loop and I hope to have more to report about community facilities at our new wonderful P-12 school in Mernda in the near future.
