SENSORY PLAYGROUND HITS THE RIGHT NOTE

November 04, 2020

Hobartville Public School students have been enjoying a new sensory playground thanks to funding secured by Federal Member for Macquarie, Susan Templeman.

 

The school received more than $16,400 for the construction of a themed sensory playground – titled Hobartville Project Wellness - which was completed earlier this year.

 

“I’ve seen the before and after pictures, and I am delighted to say what was once a somewhat drab section of the school playground is now a colourful, comfortable place to play,” Ms Templeman said.

 

“In fact, the grant goes some way to fulfilling an election promise I made, after visiting the school with the Shadow Education Minister Tanya Plibersek.

 

“The bight new sensory equipment is now being enjoyed by students from Kindergarten to Year Two, but the school tells me children from its Support Unit have particularly taken to the new area.

 

“New balance equipment that was also installed can be used by all 320 students, and teachers have incorporated the new facilities into their fitness lessons.

 

“The playground has really provided more opportunities for physical activity for the entire school.”
