St Michael’s School is looking to green up its grounds with a new watering system but needs community support to do so.

The school’s Parents & Friends entered a grant submission for $5000, which would go towards installing water pumps on both of the school’s ovals.

The grant recipient, however, is determined by the amount of public votes the school receives.

Voting closes today and the public can support the school by going to their Facebook page — St Michael’s Parish Primary School Deniliquin — and following the links.

P&F president Shelley Scoullar said with the grant assistance the project would be ‘‘a goer’’.

‘‘With our playground set over two sides of the road, we need two separate pumps which will cost about $10,000,’’ she said.

‘‘We really want to get our watering system up and running so that we can plant a native garden for the students.

‘‘We have some brilliant ideas about making a sensory garden with herbs and other plants for our special needs students.

‘‘We hope to incorporate a small shallow running creek as well and make an area where the students can unwind at lunch as not all kids enjoy playing sport.

‘‘The primary playground is also used by Intereach for their OOSH program, and being in the centre of town we feel this beautification of the school will benefit the whole town.’’
