The students at Kensington Grove Community Kindy will be safe from the sun this summer thanks to an upgrade of the playground.
Funded by Lockyer Valley Regional Council, with the addition of a SunSmart grant from the Cancer Council of Queensland, Mayor Steve Jones said the renovations created an inviting area for the children to develop their physical skills daily.
“It’s great to see this upgrade as it’s important we look after the health and wellbeing of the children in this region,” Mayor Jones said.
“The playground was due for a facelift and I’m sure all the current and future children using this facility will benefit from this work.
“The playground refurbishment includes a new swing set, climbing frame and see-saw, all made using natural materials.”
The SunSmart Grant Scheme is an initiative developed by Cancer Council Queensland and the Department of Health to assist organisations that have limited funds to increase sun protection.
The scheme provides grants to not-for-profit community organisations and schools whose primary focus is children aged 0-17 years, to help them improve sun protection measures and promote SunSmart behaviour.
