Miltaburra students enjoy upgraded facilities

It was a day of celebration and fun at Miltaburra Area School late last month as the students enjoyed an outside classroom day.

During the day the students painted murals, built sculptures and bird feeders, and painted happy rocks.

To coincide with the day the school hosted an official opening of the newly resurfaced courts and shelter shed.

The courts were opened by governing council chairperson Shan Vincenti, which was followed by some community games on the courts.

The children then had a pet parade where the pets varied from oysters, lambs, dogs, cacti, turtles and birds.

The pets were all behaved very well and the children enjoyed the parade.

School principal Karen Stokes said it was a fantastic day for the community to come together and celebrate student learning.

She said they were pleased to upgrade the courts.

"It has been a dream for several years to repair the old, slippery surface," she said.

"We have also added a new shade structure that will provide shade to children for lunch breaks, and for spectators to watch sports on the school oval.

"The upgrades create a safer and more enjoyable play area for our students, as well as a pleasant shaded area that children, parents and staff can use."

Many parents and community came to support the opening and $50 was raised the Million Paws Walk.
