Community Day provides Googong children with input on playground construction

13 Nov 2019

Our ACT team were thrilled to be part of a wonderful community day with The Anglican School Googong on Monday 14th March.

Giving up their public holiday, the Glascott team hosted the day for the kids, teachers and parents to paint the poles that will become the fence for the new all abilities playground. With the playground nearing completion, the students had great fun painting artwork on the poles that will be placed around the playground equipment.

School principal Ian Hewitt said the children were very happy to be involved in this important community development.

“All of our children got a real buzz out of the day and the parents couldn’t believe what an amazing opportunity this was for the children,” said Mr Hewitt.

More than 60 kids took part in painting the poles assisted by the Glascott team, providing real community involvement in the construction of the playground. Some of the children used their handprint and wrote their initials to leave their unique input on the playground.

Glascott are building the all abilities playground and park as part of our undertaking at Googong Township which include construction of Stages 5 and 6.

The park will be named Lovegrove Playground, after Troy Lovegrove who died from AIDS at the age of seven in 1993. The all abilities playground will be equipped with a range of different slides, rides and tactile features providing an inclusive environment for all children in the community.
