“In walking around the college over the last couple of days with the Principal reviewing all the works, he has been truly inspired and incredibly grateful for the effort and the works carried out by all. This gratefulness has also been witnessed throughout the college community with Staff, Parents and especially Students today amazed at the transformation of “their” college over the last 7 weeks. It is a very easy trait to oversell and under deliver. However, in this instance, you have all demonstrated incredible professionalism and dedication.”

– David Dryden (Facilities Manager)

St Leonards College’s facility was worn and needed a superior layout to incorporate the new sports surfaces. Grassports Australia was already maintaining the existing turf and were approached to help re-design and construct the new facility at the school from positive past dealings with us, our use of Australian made products and our in-house experienced staff.

The project included building and surfacing a new acrylic basketball court and re-surfacing another two existing acrylic basketball courts. We re-surfaced the roof top multi-sport futsal and volleyball court, as well as two existing netball courts. Grassports constructed a long jump pit with sprint tracks, while adding 4-square markings throughout. The new surfacing totalled in over 6,000m2 of synthetic turf using Supergrasse Probounce Cool Plus and Laykold Advantage Acrylic.

With staff and 1,000+ St Leonards College students attending daily, they can continue the excellent opportunities to excel and make the most of their schooling years with the fantastic design and amazing facilities. Working with our customers to provide customised, perfect solutions is something we take pride in at Grassports Australia.
