Doreen Primary School


Basketball Court

In September 2014 we started the renovation of our basketball court by having a roof constructed. This was done with the help of school parent and community volunteers and was completed over the school holiday break.   Funding was assisted by donations from school families and local businesses and the finished roof has made an incredible difference to our school. We now have a large sheltered area to run PE classes, our Day on the Court as well as other school activities. Students can now  stay out in the fresh air on wet days instead of having to stay in the classroom, and it will also enable us to hire our the court to make extra funds for our school.

The next step was to install lights so that the Basketball Court could  be used at night.  Once again the work was done by parent volunteers and the result is amazing. 

We have now installed the synthetic surface over the asphalt and it looks amazing!!! Eventually seating and nets to catch "wayward" balls will be installed, ensuring enthusiastic students don't need to traverse garden beds to collect them.
