Students jump for joy on new basketball court

TAFE New England students have returned from holidays last week to find a new basketball court at the Tamworth campus. The basketball court has been constructed by the Student Association for the enjoyment of TAFE New England students.

The basketball court was officially opened by TAFE New England Institute Director, Peter Heilbuth, on Wednesday 14 October at 12.30pm.

The celebrations for the opening included a free BBQ and entertainment by Blake Saban.

TAFE New England Director of Student Services, Cheryl Wilson, said “The construction of the basketball court came about after discussions with our Student Association members about what they would like to see on their campus”

“The resounding reply was that students wanted a fun way to spend their lunch and study breaks to get some fresh air and exercise”, Ms Wilson added.

TAFE New England invited all members of the public to attend the official opening event.
