New Playground funding for Duncan Cran
The Government of British Columbia is providing funding for new playgrounds this year across the province including a new $105,000 accessible playground at Duncan Cran Elementary School.
Superintendent of Schools, Dave Sloan welcomed the additional funding saying, “We are very pleased to be part of this grant to support playgrounds in our district this year.”
Duncan Cran Principal Griff Peet is excited about what this means for students at the school. “I think this is a great opportunity for full inclusion of our students at Duncan Cran School.”
From the government news release available at https://news.gov.bc.ca/releases/2019EDUC0023-000409:
Playgrounds are a key factor in a child’s development and learning. They encourage outdoor physical activity, help students learn how to share, overcome challenges and help them focus and learn more effectively in the classroom.
There are early dismissal days for students on Wednesday March 13 and Thursday March 14 at 1:43pm each day.
Spring Break is starting next week. Our last day of school is this Friday March 15 and our first day back to school is Monday April 1st.
