Notes from the school:

The project at RVPS was driven by staff, P&C and the school community as a whole.  We purchased through SAI Global the Standard:  “AS 4685.1:2014 Playground equipment and surfacing – General safety requirements and test methods”.  Consultation took place with Department of Finance, Building Management Works, and a final safety check was undertaken by Kidsafe WA.

The school partially funded the project together with a grant received by the P&C applied through the local shire.  In addition we received a substantial donation of materials (e.g. tyres, logs, culverts), equipment and labour through the school community and local businesses. Kidsafe estimated that we had added around $50,000 value, by utilising donations of materials and labour (in comparison to hiring a company).

Should anyone require more information they could contact the school via email: rivervalley.ps@education.wa.edu.au or phone 08 9726 3135.
