Upcoming Playground Enhancements

Well, our swings, discs and bars are IN! Moving on, this is what we envision:

2019? Accessible Nature Path, rolling hills, benches, trees, shrubs, boulders, and logs

Did you know? We are in talks with Argyle Highschool to have their woodworking class make our playground benches!


Your Playground Committee

We are a fun, dynamic team that likes to get things done! If you would like to be part of our team, please contact us.


History:

The Playground Committee was convened in 2014. Since then, we have consulted with stakeholders, including students, teachers, the school administration, the School District, and the NV Football Club, to develop a plan to meet the needs of our growing student population.  Over the years, our plan has evolved as our environment has changed.  We have seen 4 new portables added to our school grounds and a lot of new children at recess!

Our guiding principles remain constant:

  • Accessible
  • Inclusive
  • New active area focused on grades 4-7 (we already have two great primary areas)
  • Naturalize wherever possible

Phase 1:

2016 Outdoor Seating Area

We were quoted for $40,000+ to do this work and yet the Playground Committee accomplished it with a HUGE amount of in-kind donations from Miura Properties, $1000 from RBC and $1000 from BC Hydro – plus a lot of volunteer hours! Thank you to everyone who helped out to make a wonderful outdoor sitting area for our children.

As you can see, it gets a lot of use!

Phase 2:

2018: Swings, Discs, and Bars

Phase 3:

2019? Accessible Nature Path, rolling hills, trees, shrubs, boulders, and logs.

 

Phase 4:

The Dream: $43,000 Spinning Basket.  We could put it in right away if we had the funds… 🙂
