My Students

Every day I see that these are very determined and intelligent students. My students love to come to school.

We love to run and play outside during PE and recess but we are lacking playground equipment.

My students are very fun and energetic kids who need to burn some energy during their break time. Many basketballs and soccer balls have wear and tear so we need to replenish our equipment. My students love to create their own games for PE and recess but they need the equipment to make it happen.

My Project

Our classroom playground equipment stock has depleted over the years. We have items that have gone missing and some that are old and no longer of use.

We need the playground equipment items so we can play games outside.

Items such as basketballs and soccer balls and jump ropes are in high demand. By having a larger quantity, it will allow all students to be able to play and enjoy themselves.

There have been many instances where we try to play a game but we don't have the necessary equipment to do so.

With your help, we can get new playground equipment to enjoy!
