Noosa Gymnastics Club is Jumping for Joy
State Member for Noosa, Glen Elmes MP is pleased to announce that the Noosa Gymnastics Club has received a Get Playing Plus State Government grant to extend their facilities.
“Noosa Gymnastics’ extension of their indoor facility at Bicentennial Hall and construction of a mezzanine level for their popular KinderGym program has been costed at more than $1 million. I am delighted to announce that the Queensland Government have met them half way with a grant of $512, 567.
“The grant, sourced from gaming tax revenues, works to make the impossible possible for invaluable not for profit groups and organisations such as Noosa Gymnastics, who contribute to the wellbeing of our community, in particular our young people who over the years have turned to their devices for fun and friendship instead of physical activities.
“According to Gymnastics Queensland only 44 per cent of Queensland children aged between 2 and 16 years meet the national guidelines for physical activity. It makes sense for governments to invest in groups such as Noosa Gymnastics to help them deliver programs that teach our children healthy habits to take with them through all stages of their life, Mr Elmes said.
