Fairhills/KBA Basketball Stadium

Early in 2010, Fairhills High School, in association with the Knox Basketball Association completed a $2 million, state-of-the art Sports Stadium on the school’s property. This impressive building has been designed with two courts, storage rooms and staff room, and is used during the day for PE and Sports classes, and during the evening the courts are used by the Knox Basketball Association. We are now known in the local area as a school that specialises in basketball and volleyball. In association with the day and evening matches, we have introduced the concept of Fairhills/KBA Basketball Master Classes.

Fairhills/KBA Baskteball Master Classes

These classes are provided for Fairhills students and students travelling from local Knox schools who have an interest in basketball. Students who decide to join the Fairhills/KBI Basketball Master classes will receive the following benefits:
 

  • Two after school training sessions each week
  • Master Class team singlet
  • Free passes to Knox Raider games
  • KBI merchandise

 

The Master Classes will commence with a squad of 24 students, including boys and girls, who will be divided into three age groups.

As this is a joint Fairhills HS/Knox Basketball incorporated venture over and above the normal school program, there will be a one off joining fee of $40 and a membership fee of $60 per term to cover the cost of equipment, staff salaries and the hire of facilities. No charge is made for the use of the Sports Stadium.

Library

The Fairhills Library and Resource Centre is located in the centre of the school and provides a welcoming and collaborative information and learning space for all to use. Staffed by qualified professionals at all times, the library provides a wide range of resources, services and technologies to satisfy the curriculum and recreational needs of students.

 

During class time, classes and private study students visit the library to research, read and use computers. During lunchtime, students are welcome to study, read from fiction, non-fiction, graphic novel and magazine collections as well as play board/card games with friends.

 

Library staff work closely with the school’s English and Literacy teachers to support the Fairills Reading Program for Years 7 and 8 as well as the annual Premier’s Reading Challenge. Trolleys/tubs of books are regularly supplied to the classrooms so reading becomes part of daily classes. Students may borrow up to 4 items from the library for a period of 2 weeks.
