Playground boost for Holland Street school students

Students at Holland Street School are set to get new playground equipment and shade structures.

Geraldton MLA Ian Blayney said the school would receive$20,000 funding to get new and stimulating playground equipment to boost children’s physical activity or install shade structures to help protect students from the sun.

“The playground and shade structures program is giving local school children more opportunities to get moving, increase their fitness, develop gross motor skills and strengthen their bodies,” Mr Blayney said.

“Being active is one of the most important factors for children to develop and maintain good health.

“Fun and exciting playground equipment encourages children to play and use their imaginations.

“Shaded areas for children to play in are also very important in our Western Australian climate.”
