Damasucs to only get Stronger

Recently we welcomed Federal Member for Ballarat, Catherine King, to our beautiful campus to publicly announce our success in securing a federal government grant of $20,000 to install outdoor fitness and gym equipment on campus.

This grant is part of the Local Schools Community Funding, which with the College's contribution, will give our 1150 students the further opportunity to undertake a greater range of physical activity in class, at recess and lunch and through our co-curricular activities.

Our Damascus students will benefit socially, emotionally and physically from this addition to the campus, as it offers multiple stations to suit different skill levels and abilities. It promotes a healthy lifestyle and will increase regular physical activity amongst our student body.

The equipment will be installed near the blue courts, behind Building 7, allowing PE classes to utilise both facilities during class time and will further enable the PE and sport staff to provide strength and resistance training for our students.

It certainly will be a welcome addition to the Damascus College facilities.
