Let's change the court

             Let’s Change the court


Dear Board of Trustees,
Our school needs to change the courts to make them bigger and better. Student's at Reremoana school believe that we should change the courts or expand it a bit, because why else would they be persuading you to change the courts. We need to improve the courts so that we can have a better area to play sports on. If we expand the court we would actually be able to have netball and basketball games at the same time and not bump into each other. This is why I think we should expand or change the court.


  1. We could fundraise for the money to expand the courts.
  2. It’s a safety hazard.
  3. We will have better facilities to train for aims games.


You may be thinking ‘what about the money’ Well I’ve got a simple solution to that, ‘fundraising’. Our school is put at a decile 9 and that is because Reremoana school is great at fundraising. We didn’t just get put as a decile 9 for nothing. Our community in Wattle Downs has so many opportunities to fundraise. Imagine how much money we would get If we did for example a Gala. For the past few years that’s seemed to work, and we get a whole lot of cash out of it as well. Another idea could be a car wash, a lot of people would want there car washed, and it’s even better because it’s right there in their faces, rather than going all the way to the car wash place. If you think about it’s a win, win situation because they get a fresh squeaky clean car and we get all the money to make the courts even better.


It’s a safety hazard. Can you imagine just playing a fun game of netball or basketball and just suddenly bump into someone else's game or someone else? You could get injured or fall over because the basketball hoops are both cutting through the netball hoops. It could end up being quite dangerous, because you’re not really paying attention to the other people around you, besides your opposing team that you're versing. We could even put a turf on so it avoids us from falling and grazing our knees or getting injured, also if we do that we could use it for a hockey surface and to play hockey on.


We will have better facilities to train for aims games. Since Aims Games is a big opportunity for all the year 7 & 8 students,  we definitely will need a bigger space to train for Aims Games. For us we know it’s a pretty big deal. If we expanded the court than we wouldn’t have to pay other schools to use their courts, because if we had our own big court we wouldn’t have to pay.


In conclusion my opinion is that we should change the courts or expand it. This is why……  
  1. We could Fundraise for the money to expand the courts.
  2. It’s a safety hazard.
  3. We will have better facilities to train for aims games.
Why shouldn’t we change the courts, I mean look at them don’t they need to improve.
