BSWPS has a new, multi-age playground set for installation in January 2020! This will be the first major step in rebuilding play opportunities for our kids since the demise of both the school's former junior and senior playgrounds. But we have plenty more exciting play projects in the pipeline!
The next phase will include redeveloping the former junior play space into a key outdoor hub for the school: a tiered connection between the upper asphalt area and lower oval area will function as a playful climbingscape, a welcoming shaded gathering space overlooking the sports oval and outdoor learning zone. Active nature play elements will include log balance beams, stepping stones and sand play area, plus possible water-pump play zone.
Additional play-focused works being planned for include the purchase of rope-play climbing equipment and sporting equipment such as soccer goals.
Unfortunately this type of work is not directly funded by the State Dept of Education & Training. But the good news is that through the school's fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, donations to these vital projects are tax deductible. So please show your support by donating today! Every dollar donated helps gets our kids closer to more engaging, healthy and fun active play opportunities. We need everyone's help to make this happen!
