NEW PLAYGROUND FOR KIDS AT COOMA NORTH
Monday, 20 August 2018
Students at Cooma North Public School will have their very own new playground to enjoy thanks to a helping hand from the NSW Government.
The Member for Monaro John Barilaro today announced $100,000 to build a brand new playground to replace old and out of date equipment.
Mr Barilaro said its important students have access to a safe and fun outdoor playground to enjoy.
“School playground equipment has certainly changed since I was a student. Once upon a time, if schools were lucky enough to have equipment it was normally unimaginative,” Mr Barilaro said.
“These days school playground equipment is an integral part of the school day with a great emphasis placed on equipment that is fun and fulfils educational needs.
“Cooma North Public School is a fantastic place of learning and I’m pleased we can support this amazing school.”
Cooma North Public School principal Belinda Jamieson said the students and the school community are over the moon with news of the new playground.
“As a school, we have been fundraising and saving towards this project and with this contribution from John Barilaro and the NSW Government, our students will soon have a brand new, inclusive playground,” Ms Jamieson said.
“The students love getting outside and playing on the equipment, and I know they will be thrilled with the new playground.”
