Our vision is to create a much needed all-weather sport and recreation space that can be used by students and the community for active fun, competitive sport and creative recreation. It would comprise a multi-purpose pitch, spectator seating and friendship picnic tables. It would be open for whole community to enjoy on weekends and after school; available to locals for junior soccer, hockey, lacrosse, cricket, futsal etc; used weekly for interschool sports by students from Lower Plenty, Briar Hill, Sherbourne, HolyTrinity, Montmorency South and Montmorency Primary Schools; and used daily by 373 students during school hours.

Why?

We desperately need to upgrade our school’s ‘dirt patch - mud oval’. After rain it’s unusable. Even when dry, access is extremely limited because of its terrible condition. OUR KIDS DESERVE BETTER.

We want to solve this problem and turn it into a community asset.

There is ongoing pressure for access to quality sport and recreation facilities in Montmorency.

Our idea is to make the oval an all-weather multipurpose space that can be used by the whole community!

It’ll become a great community facility instead of a now dusty/muddy wasteland.

Keeping our kids active starts with having a suitable place to play. The muddy oval greatly limits this, esp during winter. Fantastic idea for the local community & school.
