Comments

Play is a pivotal part of a child's life and Souris School unveiled their new accessible play structure on June 24. Souris School students, teachers and corporate sponsors gather on the play structure to officially announce the opening for the Souris School community. The school is now working on Phase II of the plan.

Outdoor play fosters opportunities for creativity, imagination, social connection and learned behaviours and Souris School officially opened their new accessible play equipment on June 24.

The playground equipment is approved by the Canadian Disability Association accessibility guidelines ensuring children with disabilities will have access to playgrounds and play events where they can be free to play and interact with other children.

"The amount of support from the School Community Council and the community both in resources and manpower has been wonderful. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone for their fantastic support," said Lars Guenther, Souris School principal.

With 15 community sponsors and 11 community partners, the dream of having an accessible playground was made reality.

The school is now moving on to Phase II of construction which includes swings, a sandbox and monkey bars.
