Students at Holy Rosary Primary School are enjoying new play equipment thanks to the fundraising efforts of parents and friends and a grant from the Heathcote and District Community Bank Branch.
Principal Noel Dillon said the new playground served several purposes including giving students the chance to be active and to focus on upper body exercise.
‘‘It’s an area where children can play in a safe and secure environment and it provides the very best opportunity to enhance their learning,’’ he said.
‘‘We thank the Bendigo Community Bank for their support, without which we would have been unable to raise the funds for the project.
‘‘Many activities took place over the year to raise funds for the playground including a fun run, billy cart racing, support from the parents and friends, and the kind donations.’’
The bank donated $5000 towards the total cost of $30,000 for the equipment.
