COWAN House Co-educational Preparatory School, in Hilton, officially opened their new Multi-Purpose Indoor Centre on Friday.

Linda Hill, spokeswoman for the school, said the centre has three basketball courts, two tennis courts and a full size indoor hockey field.

“This enables sport to continue come rain or shine, indoors and outdoors, at Cowan House. The boys and girls have already spent many happy hours in the Centre as it was comple­ted at the beginning of the year.”

To celebrate the opening of the facility, Cowan House hosted a sports breakfast with 30 spor­ting celebrities from various sporting disciplines.

Shaun Pollock conducted the official ribbon cutting ceremony and addressed the Cowan House children with some advice on being a good sportsman.

Max Cluer and Andy Capostagno facilitated a question and answer time with all the sporting celebrities at the event.
