They were finally in a position to move forward with the project in March 2018 after extensive fundraising efforts. Since the COLA Canopy has been installed they have applied TigerTurf artificial turf to the surface. Furthermore, they installed new Airtime Hoops basketball hoops.
These additions complete the COLA. This new facility really brings a fresh breath of life to the School environment. As a result, Port Ahuriri is leading the way now as the first School in Hawkes Bay with a COLA Canopy.
