Channon kids get to play around
Children at The Channon Public School have more reasons than usual to race outside when they hear the bell, following the unveiling of $13,000 worth of new playground equipment.
The equipment includes monkey bars, a climbing frame, fire pole and slide, and was built with a grant from the Australian Governments Investing in our Schools program. It replaces the ageing timber playground and complements an ongoing P&C plan to improve facilities and beautify the school.
As well as the new playground, a sensory garden at the school entrance has been completed and plans are underway to reforest a section of the school boundary, said principal Ian Ryan. The school garden is also now producing healthy produce for the school tuckshop, and were even selling vegies to the local community as way to raise funds.
