Dedicated space for wonder, enjoyment at Rupanyup Primary School

Rupanyup Primary School students are extra keen to get outside, play and explore. 

The school has welcomed new playground equipment – the first change to the playground area in 40 years – with support from the school and broader community. 

Acting principal Darcy Taberner said plans were drawn up last year for a fully redeveloped playground area, including the new equipment, and parents and residents hosted a working bee earlier in the year to remove a playground area and some existing equipment. 

Chapple Landscaping undertook works including a new sandpit, gaga pit, water pump and new grassed area, and Adventure Plus Playgrounds installed new playground equipment.

“The playground has been an amazing addition for our students,” Mr Taberner said. 

“To see their engagement and eagerness to head out to play, demonstrates every day that our natural playground is a wonderful place for their wonder and enjoyment.” 

Mr Taberner said the playground was funded with support from Rupanyup and Minyip Community Bank, Rupanyup Lions Club, Rupanyup Consultative Committee, AGT, FRRR and RWE Renewables along with the volunteering and fundraising efforts of school community members.
