The New Playground


The playground was largely designed by a group of senior students under the guidance of teacher aide, Sharon McEwen. The playground project was the main focus during 2007/8 for the extension class who consulted fellow students by conducting surveys of preferred play equipment; contacting various playground manufacturers for quotes and assurances of quality for the proposed new playground (even gruelling them during a personal meeting!); and sourcing funds to purchase the playground.

We acknowledge the generosity of Bay Trust as the leading sponsor for the new playground, Mr Bob Clarkson (then MP for Tauranga) and the many parents, the local Seventh-day Adventist Church and other friends of the School who through their generosity, enabled us to have the playground installed and opened within five months of the official school opening.
