Vital upgrade of hall facilities for Brandon Park Primary School

This petition had 481 supporters

We, the Brandon Park Primary School community, wish to formally bring to your attention the inadequate current school hall facilities for the rapidly growing student population at Brandon Park Primary School. 

Due to the large numbers forced to amass in the small space, the air-conditioning units no longer provide adequate coverage and the hall quickly becomes hot and stuffy, with some children and adults suffering from blood noses and other related ailments as a result of the heat generated in the room. 

Community groups who hire the hall have also lodged concerns with the school in regard to the heat conditions, holes in the plasterwork, peeling paint and the unsafe flooring, as the carpet is threadbare and a potential trip hazard in some areas. 

Building suitable infrastructure would mean the school could house full-school assemblies, conduct Physical Education lessons indoors when there is inclement weather and complete major exams such as NAPLAN in an appropriate environment. There are no indoor facilities elsewhere within the school premises that can be used for these purposes and major community events and activities have been cancelled due to the lack of space. 

We therefore request funding be prioritised for the construction of a new indoor sports and hall facility that services the increasing needs of Brandon Park Primary School, and the wider community, that will also allow for future growth.
