Play area up­graded

Busi­ness do­nates logs

Eastern Reporter - - News - Kristie Lim

CAMBOON Pri­mary School in No­randa is con­tin­u­ing to im­prove its na­ture play area, which fea­tures spe­cially-moulded tree logs do­nated by a pri­vate busi­ness.

Kennedy Tree Ser­vices, which per­forms main­te­nance works at schools, gath­ered spare logs, moulded them into shapes and trans­formed an un­used area next to the early child­hood class­rooms into a play area last term.

This fol­lowed a play­ground sur­vey con­ducted for stu­dents last year.

Prin­ci­pal Jan­ice Cu­cu­loska said in­ves­ti­ga­tions af­ter the sur­vey found build­ing a na­ture play­ground was too ex­pen­sive.

“For us, we are part of the com­mu­nity but we want the com­mu­nity to be part of us as well,” she said.

“Kennedy Tree Ser­vices are a busi­ness but they have just gone above and be­yond what I had even imag­ined. What I wanted to do over the next few weeks is even­tu­ally get each class and take them out there and get them to see it.”

Ms Cu­cu­loska hoped to in­cor­po­rate a wagon with dress-up ma­te­ri­als, tech­no­log­i­cal de­vices, re­cy­clables and re­us­able goods for stu­dents to use their cre­ativ­ity.

Kennedy Tree Ser­vices arborist Robin Booth said the project was big­ger com­pared to his usual as­sem­bling and mould­ing work for other schools.
