Winning the $50,000 SimpleGenerosity grant from Envision Financial, a division of First West Credit Union will help École Heritage Park Middle School build a new playground. Having no equipment at the school makes it hard for kids to feel encouraged to play and socialize outside. Playgrounds are not simply for physical purposes, they have many social and developmental benefits for children as well. Encouraging the students to play, exercise, and participate on shared equipment helps develop a child’s ability to work with others, respect themselves and develop strong problem solving skills while learning to adapt to the environment around them. A new playground will provide accessible entertainment for kids during school and outside of school hours, building a strong sense of community as a whole. Thank you for helping us celebrate Canada150 and strengthening our communities with SimpleGenerosity!
