POSTED ON: Tuesday, 22 Sep 2020

Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (Aust Govt) research shows that less than one-quarter (23%) of children aged 5–14 undertake the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day.

School playgrounds play an important role in children’s learning and development. Playgrounds allow children through their creativity to develop their dexterity, imagination, physical and emotional strength.  However, funding new or upgraded playgrounds is a challenge faced by many schools.

There is a range of Grants available that can be accessed to fund school playground projects. To assist, we have created a resource dedicated to helping schools locate the numerous grants available. Visit our Grant Assistance page for more information.

    We are so thrilled that a_space did our school playground. Blackheath School P&C raised enough money to put in play equipment and a_space were really thoughtful and sensitive to our budget. The design, landscaping, project management and installation team were completely professional and approachable through every stage of the process. The children at Blackheath Public School are absolutely thrilled with their new equipment – the teachers can’t keep them off it.

    “This project was excellent, ran smoothly, was well coordinated and completed ahead of schedule. A new rubber surface, some new equipment and shade installation has given this playground a great face lift and an extended life”
