Safe Play Area for LA PEROUSE KIDS

La Perouse Public School, NSW

La Perouse Public School has a rich history with the local Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities.

It needs a new 'safe area' playground for its early learning and primary school children, which will help keep the school relevant for the modern urban community by continuing to provide the central meeting and play space in a safe child environment.

Great play areas help foster learning.  Devoted teaching staff are passionate and enthusiastic for their students' wellbeing and education.  Happy children become energetic and motivated learners who open up more opportunities for their own futures.

The existing playground is a central play area for the school.  The congregating, socialising and safe-space powers of this playground have been hugely beneficial to the community over the past 20 years.  At 20 years of age, though, its usable life has come to an end in its salty air environment.  Constructed in the mid 1990s with bequest funds from an Aboriginal elder, Ms Una May Smith, it now suffers substantial rust from environment and has become unsafe for play.

The desired replacement playground for the space will be fun and physically challenging, modern and affordable, colourful and robust.  It will benefit approximately 60 students from pre-school age to Year 6.  An estimated 40 community children and 50 parents will also gain enjoyment and benefit from the space during community activities held at the school.

Your support will ensure the school can continue to deliver the nurturing, energetic and safe-space play area that is so vitally needed - both for the students learning and personal wellbeing, and for parental and community interaction with the school.
