Cyclone shelter opens its doors to community
THE Port Douglas cyclone shelter is available for use by the community.
Principal Benjamin Gaske said the P & C will be governing the shelter and will approve applications appropriate for the use of the shelter and within the school ethos.
‘‘To cut a long story short we want it to be used appropriately so it’s always ready for a cyclone - hopefully it never gets used as a cyclone shelter,’’ he said.
‘‘ We have basketball so far but we encourage the use it, from sporting associations to taekwando and karate.
‘‘And although there’s no staging in there at the moment we are happy to work with theatre organisations to get staging with a community partnership and look for grants.’’
