This year Melbourne Girls' College has joined the awesome team at playground Ideas for its inaugural Year of Awesome campaign to help our school raise much needed funds to encourage play. At the same time, we are also raising critical funds to help kids around the world get a chance to play, break the cycle of poverty, and thrive!
It is a wonderful cause and we really encourage everyone to participate. Not only does the school benefit but so do many children around the world. We are fundraising for our Outdoor Classroom so please assist in any way you can!
Playground Ideas is a Melbourne based non-profit that allows anyone, anywhere to create their own play space for children using locally sourced and recycled materials. To date, they have supported over 1,800 play projects in over 140 countries.
