Bigger Play Space At Notre-Dame

Pipestone Flyer

On Tuesday, August 26th, while the school community prepares for the return to school, a group of dedicated parents got together to proudly receive a well-deserved cash influx into the Notre-Dame Playground Expansion project. Scheduled to start and be completed in the spring of 2015, this project will tackle sand replacement and the addition of new swings and other playground modules, some geared at older students. While Notre-Dame School is bursting at the seams, students have to adhere to a Playground Schedule to access the play area; when it is not their turn, they must play in the adjacent field.

Leduc-Beaumont MLA George Rogers was happy to represent the provincial Government and Heather Klimchuk, Minister of Culture, when he presented a CFEP cheque for $82, 722 (Community Facility Enhancement Program): the ‘display cheque’ in the photo mistakenly indicates $67,190, the original amount requested by the volunteer group, before they found out their grant would be larger than hoped for.

On this last Tuesday of summer vacation, Amanda Coles, chair of PANDA (Parents At Notre-Dame Association) and a dedicated helper, Carmen Warmer, who was in charge of securing contractors and supplies for the project, got a small group of kids and parents together to accept the cheque which represented a matching grant to the money raised by the group over the past year, through dynamic initiatives.

We wish the regional school divisions and all the kids a happy and safe school year!
