It’s official – 10 new high quality concrete acrylic surface netball courts at the Maroochydore Multi Sports Complex are now in action and getting a great workout!
I was delighted to recently join the Mayor and representatives from our own national team, Sunshine Coast Lightning, to officially open the new and improved complex.
These new additional courts – providing the complex with 20 hard courts altogether – played a major role in securing the national NetFest event to the Sunshine Coast on October 4-7, where up to 2500 participants are expected.
Kids in Action
A massive congratulations and thank you to the 250 students from across the region who recently got their hands dirty and their feet wet learning all about ways to build a resilient community at the Unitywater Field Day for council’s 2018 Kids in Action program.
The field day at Pt Cartwright saw students from more than 20 schools – including our own Immanuel Lutheran College, Matthew Flinders Anglican College and Montessori International College – exploring rock pools, tagging and planting trees in a local reserve, collectively creating a mural and learning about the region’s cultural history and geological future.
Sponsored by our Environment Levy Program, this year’s Kids in Action theme is ‘Changing Climates – Changing Lives’– focusing on the implications of climate change both locally and across the globe.
A quick heads up Buderim Aquatic Centre’s 25m pool is currently closed for planned refurbishment works until early July, weather permitting.
The program / learn to swim pool and remainder of the complex remains open.
Council and the centre manager apologise for any inconvenience and thank the community for their patience.
