Playground a hit at Mt. Prevost

It was just one week into the new school year and one year since the École Mt. Prevost PAC kicked off an Aviva Community Fund bid to raise money for a much needed playground for the school when the students got to try their new adventure playground.

“Are we proud,” said Mona Kaiser, one of the parent advisor hard working team, as she announced the big event.

“As promised: playground equipment for children, an outdoor classroom for teachers, vegetable gardens for students, a fitness circuit for adults, natural play features for toddlers and a gathering place for neighbours,” she said, thanking everyone involved for their ongoing efforts to bring the playground to life,” she said.

The playground was needed as École Mt. Prevost changed over from a middle school to an elementary school last year.
