New courts for Wynnum Central State School – 26.04.06

Wynnum Central State School is expected to celebrate the opening of its new multipurpose courts in the next few weeks.

Past student of WCSS, Ron Cushing, bequeathed his estate to Wynnum Central State School Parents and Citizens Association, for the children’s sports.

Teacher, Mr Greg Johnston said “He (Ron Cushing) originally wanted a roller skating rink or a swimming pool for the students but with the risk of injuries and the cost of paid pool maintenance, they were not viable options.”

Creative Court Concepts Pty Ltd has nearly completed the construction of the courts costing $103,600.

P & C President, Mrs Sharon Denby confirmed that without Mr Cushing’s generous donation, the school world not have received any of the grants made available to them.

Mr Cushing donated $35,000, which the P & C left in a bank account to earn interest.

“A Smart Schools Subsidy Scheme grant and Education Queensland provided the rest of the money needed,” said Mrs Denby.

Wynnum Central State School currently has only one large oval and the multipurpose courts will serve the students well says Mr Johnston.

The courts that will be used on a daily basis for tennis, basketball, netball and volleyball.

They are yet to be named and officially opened.
