New cubby playground at St Joseph’s now open

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - -Judy Ryan

The of­fi­cial open­ing of the new ‘cubby’ playground area at St Joseph’s was held last week, with a small group of fam­i­lies and par­ish­ioners at­tend­ing.

Three stu­dents, Lexie Bryce, Char­lie Ro­rato and Tony Gur­ci­ullo, gave a pol­ished wel­come to ev­ery­one, thank­ing all the donors, and giv­ing the story of the playground’s cre­ation. With­out any fuss or for­mal­i­ties, the trio then de­clared the new playground ‘open’.

Prin­ci­pal Nick Bray­bon thanked teach­ers, Mrs Ca­rina Ro­rato and Miss El­iza Browne, who were in­stru­men­tal in ob­tain­ing the play equip­ment, and those who had contributed to the cause. He also thanked those who at­tended the open­ing cer­e­mony.

Af­ter a guided tour of the new fa­cil­i­ties, the visi­tors en­joyed a de­li­cious morn­ing tea while the stu­dents played in the very busy lit­tle shop­ping mall and sur­round­ing street, which has traf­fic lights and a pedes­trian cross­ing.

A spe­cial sign bear­ing the names of donors is fixed to one of the planter boxes which will be filled with strong na­tive plants or sea­sonal veg­gies.

The St Joseph’s school com­mu­nity is grate­ful to the fol­low­ing donors who helped make the new playground area come to fruition: St Joseph’ sP&F, St Joseph’s Par­ish Coun­cil, Bar­low Ag, Jer­ilderie Earth­mov­ing, MAKATAK, SST, Yel­land Earth­works, Colony Inn, McFar­lane Land­form­ing, Ro­rato Nom­i­nees, East End Weld­ing, Catholic Wo- men’s League, Jer­ilderie Lions Club, Jer­ilderie Tyre Ser­vice, and Jer­ilderie Bak­ery.
