Playground shows stu­dents’ de­sign flair

Stirling Times - - News -

CHIL­DREN helped de­sign a re­cently opened playground at an Innaloo school.

St Do­minic’s School trans­formed its pre­vi­ous playground into a na­ture-based play space for stu­dents.

Staff cre­ated the de­sign af­ter vis­it­ing other schools in the area, us­ing stu­dents’ drawn de­signs and seek­ing ideas from par­ents.

Na­ture Play­grounds de­liv­ered the project us­ing cus­tom-made and lo­cally sourced ma­te­ri­als.

Teacher Jemma Davis said the par­ents and friends as­so­ci­a­tion raised $25,000 for the playground.

“The as­so­ci­a­tion held a quiz night, colour fun run and nu­mer­ous cake stalls and sausage siz­zles to raise these funds, which was quite out­stand­ing for a small school com­mu­nity,” she said.
