Play­ground grant for school

Joondalup Weekender - - News -

A NA­TURE play­ground at North Wood­vale Pri­mary School will keep stu­dents ac­tive while de­vel­op­ing their imag­i­na­tion and cre­ativ­ity.

Premier Mark McGowan, Education Min­is­ter Sue Ellery and Kings­ley MLA Jes­sica Sto­jkovski were at the school on Mon­day as part of the State Govern­ment’s Community Cab­i­net events in Kings­ley and Bal­catta to an­nounce $25,000 for the de­vel­op­ment of the play­ground.

The project will com­ple­ment the school’s ‘play pod’ where stu­dents are en­cour­aged to use their imag­i­na­tion and cre­ate things.

Mrs Sto­jkovski said she met with the school’s sus­tain­abil­ity com­mit­tee and P&C about how it could give stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to “de­velop crit­i­cal skills in a safe en­vi­ron­ment”.

“The State Govern­ment’s in­vest­ment will help bring their plans for a na­ture play­ground to life,” she said.
