MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, May 14, 2009 9 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Crown Prince sets sail for Olympic Park SHIREEN KHALIL Crown Prince Frederik THE Prince of Denmark will be visiting the Inner West this October for the 2009 World Mas- ters Games. Crown Prince Frederik will attend the opening ceremony at ANZ Stadium on Sunday October 11, and partner Sydney-based sailor Chris Meehan in the 35+ Tasar Sailing competition from October 13 to 16. Premier Nathan Rees said Crown Prince Frederik had a close affinity with Sydney and it would be a pleasure to welcome him in October. ''This is a high-profile addition to the biggest event Sydney will host this year, an event that will provide a $50 million boost to the NSW economy,'' he said. Mr Rees said the State and Federal Governments had both contributed $8.5 million and would provide additional sup- port. The Games will see 25,000 ath- letes from over 100 countries compete in 28 sports compe- titions across 72 Sydney venues, including many Olympic sites. Games registrations are open until July 31 at www.2009worldmasters.com 'Hall'elujah for funding SHIREEN KHALIL Croydon Park Public School principal Sandra Angel with students in the cramped area they use as a hall. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP276140 CROYDON Park Public School will finally receive a well deserved $2.5 million facelift. Principal Sandra Angel said she couldn't remember the last time the school had a major upgrade and she welcomed the package with open arms. The school is in line for a new hall, covered outdoor learning area and canteen through the Rudd Government's Building the Education Revolution package. ''We don't have a school hall, what we have at the moment is a corridor with an open space that we use as a hall,'' Mrs Angel said. ''We are now going to be able to fit the whole school community, as previously we had to have things such as ceremonies outdoors, which was dependent on the weather, but now we can celebrate the children's success in a closed environment,'' Mrs Angel said. ''When I announced it to the children there was a huge roar.'' The school will also be getting $150,000 through the National School Pride Program which will be used on maintenance. Major works at Croydon Park Public School will start this month and are scheduled to be completed by December 20, 2010. Strathfield State Labor MP Virginia Judge said more funding announcements would be made this month and July.
