Playground helps kids learn

BY SALLY LEE http://www.fairfieldchampion.com.au/news/local/news/general/playground-helps-kids-learn/2202136.aspx 21 Jun, 2011 01:12 PM IT WAS out with the old and in with the new for Aspect Western Sydney School in Wetherill Park. Students and staff from the school are enjoying new and improved play equipment which allows "a bit of time out" says co-ordinator Tina-Louise Angus. Last year the school received more than $58,000 from the Primary Club of Australia, a charity that helps other registered charities purchase sporting and recreational equipment and resources for people with a disability. "I was ready to rock'n'roll once we got the funding," Ms Angus said. "With the donation we were able to renovate and revamp the old playground which had 1980s-style equipment." Convenor of the charity committee of the Primary Club of Australia, Lindy Stuart, said the new playground and equipment not only gave the children a physical activity space but it was also "specifically designed and chosen to engage children with autism". "Its aim was to provide a safe and functional outdoor learning environment to be used for sensory development and for the development of social skills, life skills and gross motor skills," she said. "The ultimate goal of the Aspect Western Sydney School is for students to progress to the point where they can move on to an Aspect satellite class and then move to the mainstream school system. "Social and communication skills are integral to cope in this system and an inviting and challenging playground supports their ability to develop these skills." The school caters for pupils aged four to 16.

The Primary Club were thrilled to be able donate on behalf of the members of our charity - special playground equipment  to the Aspect Western Sydney School at Wetherill Park – a school that provides specialised evidence-based programs for children aged 4 to 16 with autism spectrum disorder, who require an autism-specific program. Aspect builds confidence and capacity in people with ASD, their families and communities by providing information, education and other services. The primary focus of the schools is to equip students with the skills to become as independent as possible and enable them to transition into more inclusive settings and caters for approximately 113 students across the Western and South Western Sydney Region. The Primary Club has made donations to many Aspect schools, which provide educational facilities for children who have autism spectrum disorder.  Like The Primary Club, Aspect is a not for profit provider, who provide Australia’s largest education services to these needy children and their families.  

The Primary Club of Australia donation of $57,000 to build a playground for the Mary Brooksbank School

Comments Off on The Primary Club of Australia donation of $57,000 to build a playground for the Mary Brooksbank School

Last year The Primary Club of Australia donated $57,000 to build a playground for the Mary Brooksbank School in Rosemeadow. The school provides educational programs for 70 students aged between 4 and 18 years with moderate to severe physical, intellectual and behavioural disabilities. In the last few years the school population increased markedly and the primary aged children only had a playground without any form of play equipment. The photos taken on the opening of the playground show how excited the children were to have their own area to play in with such interesting and brightly coloured equipment. We also donated $28,000 to the MS Studdy Centre at Lidcombe to provide special TV sets for the MS sufferers who attend the centre for long treatment periods. These TV sets were installed in 12 rooms and we were told the patients stayed up into the early morning watching TV when they were first installed as with visual impairment they had not been able to watch TV previously. Autism Australia (Aspect) also benefited from The Primary Club's donations. We built a playgrounds with softfall surfacing and fencing for two of their special schools at a cost of more than $100,000. We have received applications totalling over $66,000 since the beginning of this year so we need our members to help by attending our functions and renewing their subscriptions!
