New ELC play area to boost exploration and imagination

Date: July 3, 2020

Work has commenced at the Early Learning Centre of St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School’s Traralgon Campus to build a fabulous new playground.

St Paul’s received a grant of $200K under the Victorian Government’s Inclusive Kindergarten Facilities Program Buildings and Playgrounds.

The redevelopment of the playground will allow the school’s students to experience a play area founded on allowing exploration through play in a natural environment, ‘loose play’ and an opportunity to collaborate, gather, socialise with other children, teachers, parents and the community.

The new area has been designed to encourage children of all abilities to use their imagination and explore the outdoor play areas, and includes a water play area with water pump and mud pit; climbing areas; sandpit; raised ramp; an indigenous food garden; and vegetable and herb garden.
