COATESVILLE SCHOOL RECREATION CENTRE

$50 of $350,000 goal
Given by 3 generous donors in 4 years

The Rec Centre will be a great asset to the school and the wider community. But at least another $350,000 is required to make it a reality.

While Coatesville School has many wonderful facilities, it does not have a school hall which means our kids miss out on a number of sporting and cultural opportunities during wet weather. It limits after school activities and means that school assemblies are held outdoors – not a pleasant experience for teachers, students and parents in the colder winter months

Following strong community feedback, the School’s Board of Trustees has initiated a project to build a recreation centre (the Rec Centre) on the school grounds. With the school’s centenary coming up in 2016, this is an ideal opportunity to undertake a project of this scale. Some initial designs have been prepared for a steel structure and roof.

It features:

• Seating for around 450 students and parents, and a removable stage for performances;

• A hard-floor surface which can be used for basketball, netball, soccer, badminton and other indoor sporting events; and

• Easy access to the school in poor weather, as well as being easily accessible to the road for community users.

These entry-level Rec Centre designs are affordable and achievable and provide options to expand in the future years as more money becomes available.Expansion could include kitchen facilities or upgraded insulation and wall lining.

Big help for a big project.

The Coatesville School Centenary Rec Centre will be a great asset to the school and the wider community. But at least another $350,000 is required to make it a reality. And the more we raise the better this facility can be. With over $300,000 already raised, a dedicated group of parents have pulled together to make a plan for raising the rest of the money.

Funding will come from four sources:

1. Grants

2. Community & Individual donations

3. Community events

4. Sponsorship

This is a great initiative that will benefit our school and community – today and in the future.

We need your help.

About us

Our fantastic school is situated in an attractive rural setting five kilometres north west of Albany, twenty kilometres north of Auckland city. We have a stunning natural environment - a wonderful place to maximise teaching and learning.

While Coatesville School has many wonderful facilities, it does not have a school hall which means our kids miss out on a number of sporting and cultural opportunities during wet weather. It limits after school activities and means that school assemblies are held outdoors – not a pleasant experience for teachers, students and parents in the colder winter months
