Donations sought for Junkyard Playground
Umina Beach Public School is seeking donations of materials to help construct a Junkyard Playground.
"We are trying to establish a Junkyard Playground in the primary playground," said principal Ms Lyn Davis.
"This is a popular type of play area where children are given the opportunity to explore and play with the sorts of things their parents and grandparents may have played with when they were children.
"It allows for open-ended play, imagination, problem solving and creativity while using their whole bodies through play," she said.
To establish the playground, the school is seeking donations of materials such as wooden planks, pallets and crates, rope and a range of other items.
"Students will be given lessons on how to play safely with the equipment and will be supervised appropriately," Ms Davis said.
Anyone with items they'd like to donate to the cause or who would like more information about materials needed to construct the playground should contact the school.
