Play time at Port Neill Primary School is even more fun this year thanks to a brand new set of swings.

Four new swings were installed late last year after the school received a grant from local grain marketer EP Grain through its Community Growth Program.

Port Neill Primary School Principal Stephen Errock said the school’s community was delighted to receive the grant.

“Staff, students and families conducted fundraising last year and had only raised enough for a double swing set. EP Grain’s contribution of $1,000 has meant that we could afford a quad swing set.

“The swings are also used as a community resource outside of school time and were extremely popular over the summer holidays.

“Farming is such a big part of our community and we really appreciate EP Grain’s support of our local school.”

EP Grain General Manager Mark Carr visited Port Neill Primary School last week and was thrilled to have been able to make a contribution.

“EP Grain’s purpose is to support local grain growers and the communities they live in.

“We are pleased we have had the opportunity to give something back to the Port Neill community and we hope the students get plenty of use out of the swings for years to come.”

EP Grain is based in Port Lincoln and serves grain growers throughout the entire Eyre Peninsula.

The $1,000 grant was part of a $12,500 Community Growth Program designed to support events, projects and activities that make a positive contribution to community life.
