FDC’s charity committee recently completed another project, this time installing a new shade sail over play equipment at The Ponds School.
The Ponds School is a school for students with intellectual, physical, emotional and sensory disabilities. Students at The Ponds School are exposed to the same syllabus and curriculum content as all students in NSW. Activities are modified to suit the varying individual needs of all students.
One of the school’s primary concerns was providing shade over the student’s playground area so that they were able to play safely in the sun. It was decided that a shade sail would be installed over the school’s wheelchair accessible sandpit and water play area as it was a favourite feature of the playground for many of the students. The shade sail was designed, supplied and installed by Abacus Shade Structures.
The Ponds School reports that the shade sail has been a fantastic addition, enabling a greater number of students to enjoy the play areas as well as stay safer in the sun!
Thank you to all involved.
