Through Share Our Space, public schools are able to offer local communities safe green and play spaces during school holiday breaks. We want to promote the value of our schools, place them at the heart of our communities, and keep school spaces active all year round.What’s great about Share Our Space?
A unique program that opens school green and play spaces in the holidays and supports the Premier's Priority to increase open space for the people of NSW.
Prioritises schools in areas across NSW that don’t have a lot of open, quality community spaces.
Places schools at the heart of their communities and recognises the important role they play in supporting local people.
Provides quiet time out of school hours for adults and children.
A great way to give kids space to ride their bikes, play ball sports or get active.
Share Our Space will be operating in participating schools from Monday 21 December 2020 to Friday, 22 January 2021, including public holidays.
Gates are opened at 8am and closed at 5pm each day.
To remind visitors to maintain appropriate physical distancing and COVID safe hygiene practices, additional signage will be provided. A weekly external cleaning service will also be provided to all Share Our Space schools during the holidays and at the end of the program.
The list of schools that are open may change because of emergencies or natural disasters.
Each school will have only one gate open during Share Our Space.
School toilets are not open during Share Our Space.
