Yard Improvement Plan Update

New School Yard Improvements Coming this Summer!

In Fall 2016, Council applied for funding from the school board for a new set of monkey bars in the Junior Yard. Fortunately, we were awarded the $10,000 we applied for, plus and additional $15,000 for another project to enhance the schoolyard.  The School Council elected to use the additional funds to rehabilitate the area near the flagpole that has experienced chronic drainage issues, and upgrade it to include an outdoor play and learning space.

The total budget for both of these projects is estimated at $60,000, so the School Council will be spending $35,000 of the money raised through fundraising towards these two projects.

Project Details:

A new set of monkey bars with three clusters of boulders will be installed in the Junior Yard.

An outdoor play & learning space featuring boulders, benches, and log seating will be constructed near the flagpole.

These choices are based on the results of the student surveys conducted in the fall and spring, and have the support of the staff. Construction on both projects will be managed by the OCDSB Facilities group, and will occur over the summer, with scheduled completion in September 2017.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at council.slps@gmail.com.

Thank you to everyone who filled out the survey.  Survey respondent names were entered into a draw for an iTunes gift card.  The winner was a student in Mme Lafleur’s Grade 1 class – congratulations!
