What Local School Playgrounds are Open During School Holidays?

| |

With lockdown still on, head to your local school for a play. During the school holidays, the NSW Department of Education is rolling out the Share Our Space program at selected schools across the region which will open up the playgrounds, ovals and sports fields for the whole community to enjoy.

Share our Space opens participating schools to the community from the first Monday of the school holidays to the final Friday of the school holidays, including weekends from 8am to 5pm. 

Additional signage will be in place to remind visitors to maintain appropriate physical distancing, wear face masks and practice COVID safe hygiene practices.  Ensure you stay in your own LGA or within 5km of your house if venturing to a neighbouring LGA.

The Department of Education’s School Infrastructure NSW unit manages the program. This involves opening and closing school gates each morning and evening. External cleaning services will be provided to all participating schools throughout the holidays and at the end of the program.

Not all schools are open. In the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie & Hunter region, the following schools will be participating organised by LGA.
