Fund my idea 2017

Heat Myponga Primary School Hall to Benefit the Community.

Total funding requested


How will funding be spent?

The funding will be allocated to the supply and installation of infra-red gas heaters in the Myponga Primary School Hall.

How will the project be delivered?

Myponga Primary School will employ a heating specialist to supply and install a tailored system for efficient and cost effective heating.

The project will be managed by the school leadership team in collaboration with the school governing council, who will endeavour to ensure the timely implementation of this project with minimal disruption to community services.

How will the project benefit the region?

The existing hall is an asset to the community but is underused due to frigid weather conditions in Myponga
We do not charge community or sporting groups to use the hall
Heating will allow groups to use this space all year and encourage more people to participate in existing programs
It will bring more groups into Myponga to run programs, benefiting both this isolated community and small business
We’ll be able to host events that encourage community wellbeing (ie family movie nights) all year.

I use the shed for keep fit and it's soooooo cold it would be great to have heating and wonderful for the community to have a venue to meet in warmth.

It gets so cold in Myponga and those little children sitting/playing in a shed with a concrete floor would greatly appreciate some heating
