I joined players, students and staff to open the new football oval at Sydney Secondary College Balmain campus last week. It was great to hear from student leaders Francis and Angus and see the new field.
I was very happy to help facilitate a Community Partnership Building Program grant for the refurbishment of the school's top oval.
