Central Kids Whaihanga ELC in Hamilton would like to express their gratitude for the generous grant support they have received from Grassroots Trust.
With our support we were able to purchase synthetic surfacing to be laid over top of our existing old black rubber matting. The addition of this new soft landscape grass surfacing has dramatically changed the outdoor play area. We have received so many positive comments in regard to the new surfacing from our parents and community. It has improved the aesthetics of our outdoor playground area, and provided a safe play surface for the children.
The children are thoroughly enjoying the new surface, so much that they are lying on the surfacing as if it was real grass, which was not done on the old rubber surface! It is a much more inviting textured surface, which is safe for children to be on in warmer sunnier days, as it is not as heat absorbent and retaining as the old black rubber matting.
Thank you once again for your most generous grant.
