During the holidays a group of dedicated parents and staff worked together to make some further improvements and also do some maintenance in the K5/6 playground. As the pictures show there has been additional retaining added through the installation of some natural and creative stepping blocks and natural timber seating. The upper area around the flow form was then mulched and reticulation and lawn installed in the middle part of the playground. A safety cover has also been built to house the air conditioning unit and make the area safer and more protected from the children and the elements.
We wish to extend a huge thank you to Jasmine Hanson, who has planned (with Ute’s, Jane’s and Kerrie’s help) and driven this project. Jasmin has spent many, many hours discussing possibilities, getting quotes, talking to contractors, making up spreadsheets and liaising with the staff and workers. It was a fabulous effort and very much appreciated by the kindergarten teachers, assistants and students. Thank you also to the P&F for providing part of the funding.
A very big thank you to the ‘workers’ on this project too, especially Luke Hill who donated, delivered and put in situ with some skilful chainsaw work all the logs. Thank you also to Sam Hanson, Col Duncombe (our maintenance man) and Tommy Trigwell, who made the air conditioning cover.
We will publish a list of the businesses that contributed to this project in the near future and would urge you to support these businesses and people who support our School.
Thank you once again to everyone involved. It is a project well done and will add to richness of the kindy experience here for many years to come.
