School Greening Project – Support our Playground Renewal

Our school playstructure has almost reached the end of its lifetime, and it will need replacing.  This is an expensive undertaking which can only succeed if fundraising begins years in advance.  Not only do we need to meet eco-friendly and safety guidelines in our reconstruction, but we must make sure our new play structure has accessible components available to people with physical limitations.  The Parent Council must find the majority of the funding for this project.  It will take the energy and generosity of the whole community to make it happen.  Bit by bit, year by year, we are all working towards this goal.

Donations of over $25 made through the Ottawa Carleton District School Board will receive a charitable tax receipt. Donors who contribute over $250 will be honoured on a permanent donation display for future students and parents to see.

Our goal is to raise $8000 per year, until 2023.

Target Goal: $85,000

The estimated cost to replace the play structure is $85,000 with a combined contribution from the City of Ottawa and the OCDSB of $15,000, leaving the community (mainly parents), to fund the remainder.

School parent council has committed to raise funds that will go towards the cost of the greening project in 2022/2023.

Fundraisers for the Playground

Several fund raising activities raise money specifically for the playground renewal project.  The Mabel’s Label’s ongoing fundraiser is one of these.  To learn more about Mabel’s Labels see http://huntleycentennial.org/fundraising/fundraising-events-and-activities/

Other special one-time fundraisers throughout the year will also send funds toward the playground.  The baby trees sold at the barbecue in 2019, and the rain barrel sales in 2018, were both specifically raising money for the playground.
