Altona Green Primary School is over 25 years old and there has been no significant upgrade of the playground in this time. The current playground is tired and worn, no longer serving the growth of the school. The school has cleared an area that was not safe for students which is perfect for the new playground. The new playground would be accessible to all students. We also have a number of students with ASD at our school who would benefit greatly from a playground that includes sensory aspects and equipment that can meet their specific physical and social needs.
The school has an expanding population catering for the booming population growth in Melbourne's west which means there is currently not enough play equipment for all students to enjoy. We plan to make this playground accessible for all students by adding freestanding pieces that are safe for all age groups, so that all students can participate in outdoor play activities.
The school community has been working tirelessly over the past 3 years to raise funds. Should our application be successful, the current school community who have raised the funds to date could enjoy the playground sooner.
