DATE: Wednesday, April 11, 2012 (rain date is Thursday, April 12)
TIME: 2:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Queen Elizabeth School, 35 Barker Street, Picton, on the Primary playground
“The school council volunteered a huge amount of work and time to this project,” said Bill Launderville, Principal. “Without their efforts, contributions from our parents and major contributors such as Metro, the Williams Family, The Elks of Picton and the Kiwanis, this type of playground enhancement would not have been possible.”
The school received the new playground equipment in December 2011. It was the final phase in the Breaking Ground Project which started in 2006. Since then, the school council has raised over $60,000 towards replacing playground equipment for school and community use. The wooden equipment was removed in August 2008 as it failed to meet newly revised safety standards.
The grand opening ceremony will allow the staff and students to say “thank you” for the latest edition to the Primary yard.
