Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joined students, teachers and P&C representatives at Emu Plains Public School (EPPS) to open their new multi-purpose court made possible with a grant of $130,000 through the NSW Government’s 2018 round of the Community Building Partnership program.

Stuart Ayres said this fantastic new court now offers kids a space for hard surface sports like basketball, netball and handball.

"The Community Building Partnerships are a terrific program that provides the opportunity for local community groups such as youth, sporting, hobby groups and Council's to build, refurbish or maintain much needed infrastructure that will benefit the local community" Stuart Ayres said

Alicia Pullen, President of the EPPS P & C said “On behalf of the P&C, I would like to thank Stuart Ayres for supporting Emu Plains Public School with these funds to start our playground transformation,”
“Our P&C is dedicated to working with our school to provide the best possible opportunities and environments for our children and this generosity has not only changed the landscape of our school it is greatly appreciated by our parent community. We love our new multi court!”

Stuart Ayres said the NSW Government’s strong economic management ensures we are in a position to invest in important local projects such as this.


The 2019 Community Building Partnership Program is now open and closes on Friday 27 September.

The Community Building Partnership program awards grants for infrastructure projects that deliver positive social, environmental and recreational outcomes, while promoting community participation, inclusion and cohesion.
