If there are times during the school holidays where the kids are climbing the walls and you wish they were back at school, the NSW Government have made it easier to get the kids out of the house and into the school playground during the autumn break.

More than 80 schools in NSW have signed up to the Share Our Space program these holidays to get kids outdoors and to use valuable open space in communities right across the state.

The $30 million Share Our Space Program follows Monday’s $120 million commitment to secure strategic open spaces for public use and to build more than 200 new and improved playgrounds. The announcements form part of the NSW Government’s new $287.5 million Open Spaces and Green Sydney package.

The summer holidays we so successful that the Government decided to double the amount of schools opened in the holidays.

Education Minister Rob Stokes said school playgrounds are valuable assets and by making them accessible outside of the school term they can provide a broader benefit to the whole community, including opportunities for sport on school ovals.

What a great way to kick the kids outside whilst utilising the playground and sporting facilities of your local school!

The playgrounds will be open from 8am to 6pm, 7 days a week, from 16 to 27 April 2018. See full list of participating schools below;
