Be­gin­ning of Sun­ny­side Play­ground Cam­paign

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Made­line Mul­hol­land Stanstead

Sun­nysideEle­men­tary School pe­ti­tioned the gov­ern­ment in the re­cent past for funds to build a new play­ground. The cur­rent play equip­ment has been set ablaze by delin­quent teens and is well past its’ prime. The re­quest was de­clined, as re­cent fund­ing was al­ready given to Jardins des Fron­tiers school for a new play­ground. Ac­cord­ing to sources at the school, the fundraiser was ini­ti­ated by one of the par­ents of a Sun­ny­side stu­dent and the funds were de­liv­ered to Sun­ny­side prin­ci­ple, Mrs. Baylis-Creary, only af­ter the event had taken place. The prin­ci­ple, who has men­tioned her de­sire to ac­quire new play equip­ment, was re­port­edly pleased with the con­tri­bu­tion but has not been avail­able for com­ment.

On Satur­day, June 11th Stanstead Col­lege hosted a garage sale to help Sun­ny­side School raise money for their play­ground. The fundraiser raised ap­prox­i­mately $925, which Joanne Ross of Stanstead Col­lege claims is a good start for their on­go­ing fundrais­ing cam­paign. As it stands, the school does not yet have quotes for the es­ti­mated cost of in­stalling a new play­ground. The cam­paign will be an on­go­ing ini­tia­tive.
