Kogarah Public School will get an upgrade to its playground thanks to a $30,000 donation from property developer Level 33.
The developer is nearing completion of its $175 million Kogarah Central residential community, located opposite the highly regarded and popular primary school.
Kogarah Public School currently educates a community of 485 students and offers classes ranging from Kindergarten to Year 6.
Kogarah Public School principal Nitsa Comninos said the school was grateful to receive the donation.
"The donation will go towards upgrading an area in the playground, including installing a section of artificial grass and a large shade shelter," she said.
"We would like to thank Level 33 for this generous donation as it will allow our students to enjoy the playground in a wider outdoor learning environment and will be some consolation for the impact that this build has had on our school environment."
Level 33 spokesman Eddy Haddad said that the donation was the right thing to do for the community as the school's neighbour.
"We are delighted to make this donation which we feel is a meaningful contribution to such a valuable educational institution and helps support the local community," he said.
"Education and helping our future generations at a grassroots level is important to us as a proud local business.
"Kogarah Central is walking distance to the school it is within 400m of the Kogarah Train Station and the town centre.
"We're honoured to support the local community and help improve our local school."
