Fantastic new sports facilities are officially opened at St Maurice's High School

St Maurice’s High School finally has a brand new £500,000 facility which has replaced the old red blaes pitches at the rear of the premises in the shape of a Multi Use Games Area.

It takes the form of a three court arena surrounded by a 200m five lane running track and a 70m sprint straight. Two courts are for basketball, built to NBA specification size with adjustable height hoops. The other area will be for handball, hockey, and football. A new grass football pitch is also included as part of the overall project.

Councillor Frank McNally, Convener of Education and Families, said: “This is a superb new resource for pupils and the community to benefit from.”
